Chocolate Bundt Cake

Sometimes short cuts are just what you have to do in cooking. And, this chocolate splatter bundt cake is one of those recipes that has a shortcut.

Now, this doesn’t in one iota way compromise the flavors or taste of this cake. It just saves some time. And, who doesn’t need to have time-savers in their busy lives.

Chocolate Cake with Cake Mix

Starting with a good quality chocolate cake mix is the key to this cake. Then we’re going to follow the directions, but add a few flavorful tweaks that will make this cake even chocolateeER. Really, is that a word?

However, if you don’t want to use a cake mix, which saves some time, then by all means do a scratch cake. And, there’s nothing better than my Retro Birthday Chocolate cake recipe. 

Moist Chocolate Bundt Cake

This recipe can be used for the batter and you simply adapt the baking pan to use a bundt pan. The baking time will be very much the same. 

Best Chocolate Bundt Cake

What I love about the chocolate splatter bundt cake is that the ‘splatter’ isn’t perfect. It’s a homemade chocolate ganache that’s drizzled helter skelter atop the cake creating a pattern and look of fun and delight.

Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake

If you don’t want to make the ganache, which is super easy, then look at buying some chocolate syrup or drizzle and use that. Another option is to simply use powdered sugar and dust on the topping. 

Sour Cream Chocolate Bundt Cake

I used plain Greek yogurt in the recipe, but you could certainly substitute sour cream. 

If you’ve got little ones who are in the kitchen with you. Then you just might let him or her doing the finishing ‘splatter’ touches. Would be so stinkin’ much fun because you can’t mess up. And, the messier you are, the better the splatter is!

Yield: One Bundt Cake


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • 1 pre-packaged chocolate cake mix, see notes below if you prefer to make a scratch batter
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt, plain
  • 2 ripe bananas, cut into about 2” chunks
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chunk pieces
  • 7 oz. chocolate, broken into chunks and pieces (I used chocolate with sea salt. For example, Lindt or Ghiradelli brand.)
  • ¼ cup + 2 Tbl. half and half cream
  • 1 tsp. butter, salted


  1. Prepare the cake mix according to directions. Add the yogurt and bananas and blend with a hand mixer until all is worked into the batter. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  2. Coat a bundt pan with cooking spray or grease. Pour in batter. Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 40-45 minutes or until a 4-6” wooden skewer comes basically clean from the center. Remove to a cooling rack for about 45 minutes.
  3. Flip cake from pan onto a serving plate. Let it cool another hour or so.
  4. Meanwhile make the chocolate ganache. Combine the chocolate and cream in a microwavable bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 6 minutes. Remove and blend the melted chocolate into the cream.
  5. If all the chocolate is not fully melted. Microwave again in 20 second increments until melted. Add the butter and blend in well. Cool a few minutes then drizzle on the cake.
  6. An alternative to microwave for the ganache is to melt the chocolate/liquid on your cooktop. There are two methods: double boiler or directly in the saucepan.
  7. DOUBLE BOILER: Flll a saucepan about halfway with water. over medium heat. Use a heat resistant boil placing it over the water. Add the chocolate and liquid. Whisk and blend until melted and smooth. Add the butter and blend.
  8. STOVETOP DIRECT: In a small sauce pan over very low heat, put the chocolate and liquid. Let it slow melt and blend. Add the butter when the chocolate is a thick mixture. Blend well.
  9. Extra ganache can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. It will harden. To re-use, simply heat on low and add additional milk/cream if needed to thin somewhat.


If you'd like to make the cake batter from scratch, then here's one of my favorite chocolate cake recipes. Just adjust for the type of baking pan!
