ULTIMATE CHOCOLATE FUDGE BUNDT CAKE — This amazing chocolate cake starts with a cake mix and couldn’t be easier or more decadent.
There are a lot of recipes for chocolate cake out there, and believe me I’ve tried quite a few. But I always come back to the Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Bundt Cake.
It is hands-down, tried and tested, the best chocolate cake I’ve ever made!
This is absolutely THE answer to a chocolate lovers cake. I follow your recipe and it turns out perfectly each time, a super moist, decadently delicious cake. Thank you so much for the recipe!!! ~ Mary Beth
In fact, I’ve been making this rich, decadent chocolate bundt cake for over 20 years and in all that time, I’ve never found another recipe that comes close to being as rich, dense and decadent.
It’s my go-to chocolate cake recipe and I’ve never served anywhere that it didn’t receive rave reviews.
I’m not a big fan of regular old cake from a box mix, but this has enough additions to transform it into a dense, moist, gooey cake.
I have made this cake several times and it is to die for!! Yummy chocolatey goodness in every single bite! Today I plan to make cupcakes for the school bake sale using this recipe! Bet they sell out fast! ~ Nancy
I rarely even frost it, although it’s fabulous drizzled with this homemade chocolate ganache, or topped with some homemade whipped cream and fresh berries.
Rather than greasing and flouring my bundt pan, I just use a generous coating of Baker’s Joy. And I really like to use mini chocolate chips in this recipe if I have them handy. They almost melt right into the cake!
Absolute perfection! Making it for the second time in a week. Love how effortless it is and how wonderful it tastes! Thank you for sharing. ~ Jessica
Everyone needs a great chocolate cake like this in their recipe box. It’s perfect for almost any occasion, including special occasions.

My family thinks this is the best cake ever. My daughter-in-law is a registered dietitian and she loves it. My son is having a surprise party for her tomorrow…..and he asked me to bring two of the cakes to serve to the guests after lunch.
That is the ultimate compliment to you. She doesn’t care for many sweets but savors this one. ~ Judy
