Bundt Cake #25: Dark Chocolate Raspberry

Last Valentine's Day, we had three other couples and their young kiddos over for dinner instead of going out.  Andrew and I had a one and two year old, one couple had a 4 year old and 6 month old and the other two couples had 2 year olds and were each very, very pregnant.  None of us were in any condition (or mood) to go out.  I made this version of the Rachel New Bundt Cake because it sounded romantic and fancy...just what you need for Valentine's Day.

Shopping List
1 box of chocolate cake mix
2 small boxes of instant chocolate pudding
1/2 cup of veggie oil
1 1/4 cups water
 4 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups raspberry jam
4 cups powdered sugar
1 stick butter, softened
2 tablespoons dark chocolate cocoa powder (it's right next to the regular kind)
3-4 splashes of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fresh raspberries to garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease (I use Pam) a 10 inch bundt pan

In mixing bowl, combine cake mix, puddings, oil, water and eggs with electric mixer.  Stir in one cup chocolate chips.  Pour half of the batter into prepared pan, take your jam and spread it over the batter in the pan.  Pour remaining half of the batter over jam and bake 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let cake rest on counter in pan 10 minutes.  Then, invert cake onto serving plate to finish cooling. 

To make the frosting, beat butter with powdered sugar, cocoa powder and milk until creamy.  Stir in vanilla extract. Spread on cooled cake and top with fresh raspberries.

Dark chocolate and raspberries...Valentine's Day in a bundt cake.

Hi! I've been reading your blog for a while now. Love all of your recipes! But I've had this question for a while now. It may sound silly, but do you just add in the boxes of pudding. Dry. Or do you mix it up, then add it. Thanks!

Hi! That's a great question!! I just add the powdered contents of the pudding boxes to my recipes. It's that simple! Thanks for supporting Mix and Match Mama!! Shay

Good Morning! I have a question about this cake. I attempted to make it this weekend. My jam sank to the bottom (or top depending on how you look at it.) It made a huge mess when i tried to flip it. Any advice?

I've made this cake twice and even though the jam melted through, my pan was sprayed well enough with Pam that it didn't stick. Next time, make sure you have your pan dripping with Pam. Sorry about the mess!
