I don't think that there is a single thing that I love in the world more than a chocolate cake. Sure I've had dozens of other desserts that I have loved, but when all is said and done, I always come back to the chocolate. Here's one of my favorite chocolate cake recipes.
Chocolate Bundt Cake
For the cake you'll need:
1 pack of chocolate devil's food cake mix
1 small pack of instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup of milk
1-1/2 oz. Amaretto liqueur
1/2 cup of vegetable or canola oil
1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of fresh raspberries (optional)
For the glaze you'll need:
1 stick of butter
3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of Amaretto
First, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Combine the first 6 of the cake ingredients and blend it all together well, then stir in the chocolate chips. Butter and flour your bundt pan and pour in the batter. Now you can bake your cake for about an hour. Stick a toothpick or a fork in until it comes out clean.
Now melt all of the glaze ingredients in the microwave or in a sauce pan. While the cake is still hot in the pan, pour most of the glaze over it and then let the cake sit in the pan for another 25 minutes. Next, remove the cake from the pan and pour the rest of the glaze on top.
Here's a neat addition for fruit lovers. If you hate fruit a ton, go ahead and skip this part, the cake will still be delicious. Since this is a bundt cake, there is a nice big space in the middle. Fill the middle space with raspberries. They taste great with the chocolate, and they make the cake look beautiful as well, which is perfect for serving to guests.
