Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe

Here is a chocolate bundt cake recipe you might want to try!



  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup butter (that has been softened)
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk (some people have reduced the milk by 1/4 cup and replaced it with 1/4 cup of light sour cream)


  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt with the cocoa and then set the entire mixture aside.
  • Cream the butter, the sugar, the shortening and the vanilla in a large bowl until it becomes light and fluffy. Add the five eggs -- one at a time.  Make sure to beat well after each egg is added. 
  • Then add the flour mixture -- alternately with the milk. Mix everything well.
  • Pour your batter into 10-inch bundt pan. (As some people have noted, you will probably have too much batter.  You can always bake a small, extra cake with the batter you don't need).
  • Bake it at 325 F for about 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. 
  • Once it's done, let it cool for at least 10 minutes in the pan and then put it on a wire rack to allow it to finish cooling.


To get the best out of this chocolate bundt cake recipe you might want to try to alter some of the ingredients slightly the next time you bake it to make it even more moist.  One cook added a box of chocolate pudding mix to the recipe and substituted buttermilk for regular milk.  The result was said to be a super moist cake!
