Chocolate Pudding Cake

This simple dessert is a chocolate lover’s dream! It is so moist and melts in your mouth. This recipe only uses a few set ingredients and can be made in no time. I love adding a big scoop of vanilla ice cream to enjoy with it.

Key Ingredients You’ll Need

Butter: You will need butter that is cooled and melted for this recipe.

Chocolate: You will be using a chocolate cake mix for this recipe. This can be homemade or store-bought. A box of instant chocolate pudding for the top layer (or you can make our homemade chocolate pudding). And, semi-sweet chocolate chips to sprinkle on top.

How To Make Chocolate Dump Cake

Step 1. Use the non-stick baking spray to grease a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish and set the oven to 350 degrees. Put the chocolate cake mix evenly into the prepared dish. Top with a layer of the instant pudding mix. Combine the milk and butter and make sure the butter isn’t too hot. Add all over the mixes and use a whisk to gently combine.

Step 2. Add the chocolate chips to the pan evenly across the top. Set in the oven for 40-45 minutes to bake. Serve with your favorite ice cream or toppings. Enjoy!

What Is A Dump Cake?

Instead of the hassle of mixing all your ingredients in a million different bowls and having a ton of dishes to do. This dump cake allows you to add the ingredients directly into the pan before baking.

How To Serve?

This recipe is so rich that it doesn’t need any icing or frosting on top. However, you can enjoy this chocolate pudding cake with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and hot fudge sauce.

Variations

Toppings: Chopped candy bars, nuts, toffee chips, mini M&M’s or other types of baking chips (peanut butter chips, caramel chips, etc…) would also be great sprinkled on top. Drizzle caramel sauce on top for an extra delicious flavor.

Chocolate chips: You could also substitute dark chocolate chips or milk chocolate for the semi-sweet chips.

Cake Mix: You could use either a fudge cake mix or a devil’s food cake mix for an even richer chocolate flavor.

Storage

Refrigerator: This chocolate pudding cake can be stored in the fridge covered with plastic wrap for up to 5 days.

Freezer: Store up to 3 months in an air tight container. Let it thaw in the fridge overnight before serving, then bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes or until it’s warmed throughout the cake.
