Chocolate Cake a la EASY

Rose Michaelsen


This recipe is super quick and super easy. It has 6 ingredients and can be easily made by even an inexperienced cook but looks and tastes like it took a lot of effort. I have made it for potluck dinners and church functions for years.

35 Min


1 box
four serving size cooked type chocolate pudding
1 box
dry chocolate cake mix * dark chocolate fudge if possible
2 c
1 tsp
vanilla flavoring
1 1/2 c
semi sweet chocolate chips (not imitation)
1 c
chopped pecans or walnuts (your choice)


1Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 degrees of using a glass dish). Grease and lightly flour or if you want cocoa a 9"x13" pan and set aside for cake.
2Cook the pudding mix on medium heat in the milk according to box directions.
3Immediately upon the pudding thickening dump the DRY cake mix into the HOT PUDDING and stir (do not need mixer) until blended.
4Add the vanilla extract and blend.
5Pour into the prepared pan.
6Sprinkle the chips and nuts over the top and bake for 35 minutes or until the cake pulls away from the pan edges. A toothpick or cake tester does not really work as the chips will melt and cause it to look wet yet on the tester.
7NO NEED to frost or top this cake. It has a dense and moist texture and can be considered part brownie and part cake. I have never had leftovers. :)
