This is one of my husband's favorites. I modified a made-from-scratch cake recipe, for this very easy, delicious cake. It presents beautifully with the white glaze and chocolate stripes.

Ingredients

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 pkg instant chocolate pudding mix (3oz)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp coffee powder, instant
  • 1/3 cup bourbon (Marker's Mark)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted (unsalted preferred)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp corn syrup, light
  • 3-4 Tbsp light cream, 1/2-n-1/2, and/or milk
  • 1 oz chocolate chips, semi-sweet, melted

Baking Instructions

  1. Combine together in a large mixing bowl cake mix, pudding mix, coffee powder, bourbon, water, butter, applesauce, eggs, mixing until dry ingredients are wet.
  2. Scrape bowl & beaters, and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  3. Bake at 325 degrees in greased, floured bundt pan for 50-60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean, letting cool in pan for 10 minutes.
  4. Invert on cake rack over a plate large enough to fully cover the bottom of the cake, then remove pan.
  5. For glaze, combine powdered sugar and corn syrup in a medium bowl, stir together adding enough cream (1/2-n-1/2 and/or milk) to make smooth and pourable, and pour glaze over cake.
  6. (Note: If the glaze is rather thin, repeat the last step as follows: Holding by the rack, move the cake & rack over to another plate large enough to fully cover the bottom. Pour the glaze from the first plate over the cake. Repeat as necessary to achieve a glaze of desired thickness.)
  7. Let set and dry before drizzling chocolate.
  8. Melt chocolate and stir until smooth, then place in the bottom corner of a disposable plastic baggie.
  9. Make a very small cut in the corner of the bag, to allow a thin line of chocolate.
  10. Drizzle back and forth over top of one side of cake, rotating to cover all sides of cake .
  11. Glaze should set in about 30 minutes or so.

Tips

Devil's Food Cake Surprise!

Devil's Food Cake Surprise!

Change the following ingredients, instead of the ones written on the box of the Devil's Food Cake box. It will just make it a more elaborate and moister cake, for a change!! 1c sour cream 1 pkg instant chocolate pudding and pie filling 1/2 c oil 1/2 c water 4 eggs 12 oz. chocolate chips Mix all together including cake mix and bake at 350 for 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick put in center comes out clean.


Extra Pie Crust

Extra Pie Crust

If you have any extra pie crust left over, roll it out and spread some cinnamon and sugar over the top. Roll up and cut into 1/2-1 inch slices and bake them while you are baking your pie. Check them regularly so they don't get too brown. Once they are a light golden brown remove from oven and cool. Nice change on a snack idea.
