Charlotte Carlile


This recipe is one of our family favorites. It came from a magazine long long ago. We changed it up just a bit and made it our own. Kids love this cake and its so easy to make. It will be a hit at your next social. Give it a try. Gotta love a bit of gooey chocolate.

How to Make Golden Chocolate Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 350, spray bundt pan with non stick spray.
  2. Mix together cake mix, eggs, oil, pudding and water on low for 30 seconds to blend then beat on high for 2 minutes. On low, blend in sour cream. Remove bowl from mixer and stir in all other ingredients. I cannot stress enough, NO PUDDING IN THE CAKE MIX. Total messy disaster if you get a mix with pudding in it.
    Hint: freeze the chocolate bars for a bit before chopping.
  3. Bake for 60-65 minutes, cool and dust with confectioners sugar.
