Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

This is a recipe that my husband’s family goes nuts over no matter when or where. I earn an immense amount of brownie-points when this baby comes out at any of our gatherings. Whether I make it for a birthday party or just for a Sunday potluck, it’s one of the first desserts to go. It isn’t crumbly, so its super easy to serve. It can serve about 10-12 people, and leftovers keep for up to a week!

Do you have to refrigerate bundt cake?

No! There is no need to refrigerate! Bundt cakes are fine to stay at room temperature. If you would like to refrigerate, it will keep for up to 1 week. You can also freeze a bundt cake for up to 6 months.

What is the difference between milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips?

Semi-sweet chocolate is slightly bitter and has similar qualities to dark chocolate. Milk chocolate is creamier and sweeter and a little lighter in color. A lot of bakers are split down the middle on which is their favorite.

Can I use another boxed cake flavor if I want?

Yes! Another variation we love for this cake is to use devils food cake. Strawberry Cake is also a popular choice. Simply follow the same directions regardless of boxed cake flavor you choose. We would recommend sticking to the ingredients in this recipe for the sake of “we know what we cook”, but sometimes you gotta just go with what you have on hand!

Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake


  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Whole Milk
  • 1 Box Betty Crocker yellow cake (butter recipe)
  • 1 Box Royal Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix (Large Box)
  • 4 Eggs
  • Vegetable Oil

How to make our Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Combine the yellow cake mix and the vanilla pudding powder in a large bowl and mix.

In a small bowl, mix the eggs, milk, and vegetable oil.

Dry ingredients in a bowl beside wet ingredients

Slowly combine the wet ingredients with the dry ones. Once fully mixed, fold in the mini chocolate chips. You HAVE to use the mini chocolate chips. If you use regular-sized chocolate chips, they will sink to the bottom as the cake bakes and you do not want that! This cake batter is thick enough to perfectly support the mini chips. (Here is why others may have a problem with this!)

Batter in bowl for Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

Next, pour the batter into a greased bundt pan. You will notice that as all the ingredients become fully combined, the batter becomes a pretty bright yellow.

Bake at 350 F for 60 minutes. Once baking is complete, let the cake sit for five minutes. After five minutes, place a plate underneath the bundt pan and flip the two over.

Garnish however you want or eat just as it is! We specifically garnished this one with a dusting of powdered sugar and fresh cranberries and blueberries. You can dress it up to fit any holiday or event! Enjoy!
