“I found this on a box of cake mix years ago, I don't remember the brand. We love strawberries and chocolate and this cake didn't disappoint. I have also made using orange cake mix instead, with good results.”
1 bundt cake

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 ounce) package strawberry cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)
  • 3 eggs (or as called for by your cake mix)
  • 13 cup oil (or as called for by your cake mix)
  • 1 13 cups water (or as called for by your cake mix)
  • 12 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 (15 ounce) container chocolate frosting (ready to spread)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease and flour (I use Bakers Ease) a 12 cup bundt pan.
  3. Prepare cake mix according to package directions.
  4. Pour 3/4 of the batter into the bundt pan.
  5. Add the melted chocolate to the remaining batter in the bowl and mix thoroughly.
  6. Carefully spoon this mixture in a narrow ring on top of the existing batter in the pan, taking care to keep it away from the edges.
  7. Bake according to you particular mix's directions, mine calls for 35-30 minute.
  8. Cool in pan for 10-15 min and then remove to wire rack to complete cooling.
  9. Once, cool, heat the frosting in microwave for about 15 sec to warm to a pourable glaze and pour over top of cake.
  10. If you like a lot, use the whole tub, I usually only use 1/2, and save the rest for another use.
  11. Of course, If you have a favorite from scratch chocolate glaze, you can easily substitute it.
  12. I use the ready made in this instance for the sheer convienence.
