Made this for our July 4th dinner. It was so yummy. One sister said to make a chocolate cake one sister said fudge brownies. They had me so confused I made both, together :)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Oh my ... this cake will take care of anyone's chocolate craving. The cake was dense but not heavy. I will definitely be taking this to the next pot luck. My chocolate crazy friends will be so happy!


1 box
chocolate cake mix
1 pkg
fudge brownie mix (i used a 10.25 oz pouch of betty crocker)
1 can(s)
chocolate fudge cake icing
1 c
water (may need a little more) i used 1/4 cup more than the cake mix called for
1 c
another jap member says she has betty crocker gluten free mixes, cake mix is 15 oz and brownie mix is 16oz. may need to adjust water and oil

Directions Step-By-Step

preheat oven to 350. Grease and lightly flour bundt pan.
In a larger bowl mix, cake mix, brownie mix, oil eggs and water. Pour into bundt pan and bake 50-55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean
Let cake cool, transfer to serving plate. In a small bowl, add 1/2 tub of ready to use cake icing, melt in microwave 30-45 seconds until it is able to be drizzled over cake
***COOK'S NOTE*** Do not use the ingredients on the brownie mix and cake mix, just what is listed above, the brownie mix can be a slightly bigger size but I wouldn't go more to much more, that is why I said you may have to use a little more water, depending on what brand of cake & brownie mix you use

I also use butter milk rather than water, it too makes for a very moist and light cake.

If it's too dry for you, try adding a cube of room temp butter to it. The fat is what makes it moist. Also I add a bag of Nestles caramel delightfulls it really amps up the flavor!!

I will try these suggestions because I made it and it was very dry, but the flavor was awesome!

When I make the cake, I actually use a regular-sized cake mix and a family-sized brownie mix, not the 10.25 oz. brownie mix. A family-sized brownie mix varies between the same ounces you mention, and the cake is always wonderful with the 2 full-sized mixes.

Just an FYI a normal size cake mix is between 15.25 ounces and 18 ounces depending on what brand you buy.
