Recipe adapted from Joanna & Chip Gaines from People food.  Photo credit: Jennifer Causey

Recipe:

  • 1 (15.25-oz.) pkg. devil’s food cake mix
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 (3.4-oz.) pkg. vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 tbsp. light corn syrup
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, plus more for serving

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350º.  Combine cake mix, yogurt, eggs, 1/2 cup warm water, pudding mix and 1/2 cup corn oil in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds.  Increase speed to medium, and beat until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes.  Gently fold in chocolate chips.  Pour mixture into a lightly greased and floured Bundt cake pan.  Bake in preheated oven until a wooden pick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.
  2. Remove cake from oven, and cool in pan 10 minutes.  Transfer cake from pan to wire rack; cool completely, about 1 hour.
  3. Combine cocoa, 2 tablespoons water, corn syrup and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a medium saucepan.  Cook over low, stirring constantly, until blended, 1 to 2 minutes.  Gradually add powdered sugar, whisking constantly, until smooth.
  4. Drizzle glaze over cake.  Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar.  Serve with strawberries and vanilla ice cream, if desired.

Serves:  12              Active time:  10 minutes             Total time:  1 hour, plus cooling
