Chocolate Surprise Cake


Today is my final day for Dessert Week at Cooking Dunkin Style! Thanks for dropping by!

I realized the other day I have only used my Bundt pan once in it's lifetime, and it must think I have forgotten about it. It must be one sad Bundt pan. I decided to remedy that situation immediately.

I enjoy experimenting and putting yummy stuff in the middle of cakes and cupcakes, you may have noticed this. One other thing I never do is make cakes from scratch. Actually there are three things I always use a boxed mix for, 1. cakes and cupcakes, 2. brownies, 3. pancakes. Where was I?

Oh yeah, I wanted to use my neglected Bundt pan and decided to put some chocolate chips and marshmallows in the middle. It turned out spectacularly well! It was sooo good, no frosting was needed!

1 Cake Mix, I used Chocolate Fudge
Chocolate Chips
Mini Marshmallows

Make your cake batter according to the directions on the box.

Pan spray your Bundt pan, even if it is non stick as mine is

Pour 1/2 of your cake batter into your bunt pan

Sprinkle chocolate chips on the top of that, be generous

Sprinkle marshmallows on, you don't want to see batter thru the marshmallows

Bake for the length of time and at the temperature indicated on the box

Let the cake cool, invert onto a plate or cake stand and shake some confectioners sugar on.

Eat it before anyone else can!
p.s. puppy countdown, 10 days till we pick up our girl!

This cake looks AMAZING. I have a weakness for anything that involves marshmallows.

It's funny that you pulled out your rarely used Bundt pan, because I've been looking for mine this morning. I found a recipe for a chocolate flan cake that I want to use for a "Mexican" pitch-in, but now I think I should keep it out and hide things in other cakes, too!

I want to say, no one expects the Spanish Inquisition - but I don't know if you're familiar with Monty Python - it was the "Actually there are 3 things." Sorry I have one of those minds, or more likely I have no mind. :-)

Seriously good looking cake, Cheryl.

you've only used the bundt cake once? really? I can't imagine life without my bundt cake pan! I use them at least once a week! It's so easy and quick, and impressive-looking some more!
that cake looks really rich and velvety though, mm! and quick and simple, too!

LOL - you'd never survive here! No box mixes available...well, a few, but nothing very appetizing! If you ever want to try cake or cupcakes from sctratch, lemme know...I've got a few REALLY good ones! ;o)

Anyway, looks delish tho!!!

I love the look of your cake, it looks fabulous..even if it was made from a box!! Some of the best cakes do come from a box.
