Spiced Triple Chocolate Cake Recipe

chocolate cake recipes, spices, ginger, dessert, pudding, receipts
Imagine a rich and luscious chocolate cake slightly reminiscent of gingerbread, and you will be drooling over this dessert. Chocolate cake with pudding and chocolate chips topped with a simple sweet glaze is sure to please any chocoholic. This is one of the most moist chocolate cakes you will ever try. It goes together fast since it begins with a cake mix. May be made as a sheet cake or bundt cake.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 24 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 package chocolate cake mix, any variety
  • 1 (4-serving size, 3.9 ounces) package chocolate flavor instant pudding and pie filling mix
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten with a fork
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Optional glaze (see below)

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with non-stick foil. (See below for Bundt cake preparation.)

In a large bowl, stir cake mix, pudding mix, ginger, cinnamon, and allspice together until evenly distributed. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add eggs, sour cream, vegetable oil, brown sugar corn syrup, and water. Mix on low speed until combined, scraping down sides often, then beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Fold in chocolate chips.

Pour into prepared baking pan and bake about 40 minutes, until center springs back when lightly touched and sides are pulling away from the pan. Cool to room temperature before adding the optional glaze.

Yield: 16 to 24 servings, depending on cut size

Optional Glaze:
Whisk 2 to 3 Tablespoons of heavy cream or milk into 1 cup powdered sugar to a drizzling consistency. Spoon into a zip-top bag, squeeze out the air, and seal. Snip off one small corner of the bag and use as a pastry bag to drizzle the cooled chocolate cake with the glaze.

For Bundt Cake: Spray 10-cup Bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray, and dust with cocoa powder, tapping out any excess. Bake bundt cake about 50 minutes, until center springs back when lightly touched and sides are pulling away from the pan. Cool on rack for 15 minutes, remove cake from pan and cool completely before drizzling the glaze.
