Devil's Food Pound Cake

This one is simple, but good. It originally came from the Duncan Hines cake mix box, but I have made some changes - milk for water, butter for oil, and pudding. It makes a nice heavy pound cake with a fine crumb. A Bundt cake pan makes for easy serving. I like serving it with cherry pie filling and whipped cream, but it's also good with caramel frosting drizzled on. Top it with chopped pecans, and you have a Turtle pound cake!
