Pudding Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

If you have been the following the Little Kitchen this week, I have been on quite the crepe kick.  I am just  completely convinced it is one of the most versatile recipes and the sweet and savory options are endless! However, if you are not so interested in going on a crepe quest, I am now returning with some of my favorite recipes; however, I cannot promise you won't see a few more crepes pop up every now and then.  Once again, my picture does nothing to convey the wonderfulness and deliciousness of this cake! Try it once though and I bet it will become a go to cake for you just as it is for me.  Because it is made with pudding, it is one of the most moist cakes I have ever baked myself.  It will take you approximately 10 minutes to assemble and just a few ingredients, which gives it the Little Kitchen stamp of approval.  Enjoy!  
Pudding Chocolate Chip Pound Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
1 small box instant vanilla pudding

Step by Step
1.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees
2.  Mix first three dry ingredients.
3.  Add eggs, water and oil.

7.  Additional Option: Serve with a dollop of whip cream .


  1. Ashlea--this is also one of my "go-to" cakes. To make it even more special, here's what I do to it. While it is cooling in the pan, i make a basic chocolate cooked frosting (like what you would do for Texas sheet cake), and while the cake is still warm, spoon the frosting over the cake. My family loves this. Then, if I REALLY need to spruce it up another notch (like for my Boss's birthday), I do chocolate dipped strawberrys, and fill up the middle of the bundt cake w/ them and have them sort of "spill" over the cake, w/ a few around the edges as well. This really makes an unbelievable presentation, and not only does it look great, as you know, it tastes great too!!
