Devil's Food Pound Cake

Rating: Not Rated 4 Comments

This is definitely the chocolatiest pound cake around. Create a glaze for this Devil's Food Pound Cake using your favorite flavor of frosting.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 10-inch Bundt pan or tube pan.
  2. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water and oil in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed with electric mixer for 2 minutes. Pour into pan.
  3. Bake at 350°F for 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 25 minutes. Invert onto heat resistant serving plate. Cool completely.
  4. For glaze, place frosting in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high power 10 to 15 seconds. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over cake.

I can't find a 3.4 oz. of instant pudding anywhere. Does anybody know how many teaspoons are in a 3.4oz box?

I've been baking these pudding cakes for years with Duncan Hines mixes and people think I'm an amazing Baker. It's so easy with these mixes. This cake is fabulous and I like to dress it up by dusting it with powdered sugar patterns. Makes it look especially nice and it's a good option to icing.

I love this recipe. I added a half cup chocolate chips. Can’t have too much chocolate. I’ve also used this with lemon cake and cheesecake pudding for a lemon pound cake.
