Chocolate Dump Cake is a deliciously rich chocolate-filled dessert with chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, and chocolate chips. The best part is that you just pour a hand full of ingredients into the pan, bake, and enjoy.
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?
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.
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.
