My mom gave me this Williams Sonoma chocolate chip bundt cake mix a while ago, so I figured I’d make it and do a little review of it on here. The cake ended up being moist and very chocolatey, but not too sweet (which I didn’t like, haha). On top of that, it wasn’t much easier to make than if you were to just bake a bundt cake from scratch. It’s got a cute box, though, and all of the basic ingredients are included (although you’ll need to provide eggs, butter, and milk). All in all, it was a good cake but not worth the $14 it costs to buy the mix.
Inside this box you will find…
A sugar packet
A dusting packet
And a cake mix packet.
You’ll need to provide four eggs, two sticks of butter, milk, and powdered sugar.
First grease the bundt cake pan and use the dusting packet (which is filled with cocoa) to dust the pan.
Put the softened butter in your mixing bowl…
And beat until smooth.
Add the sugar and beat until creamy.
Beat in the eggs one at a time, then alternate adding in the dry ingredients and the milk.
Until it looks like this.
Fill your cake pan with the batter and bake for 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees F.
After it’s cooled, carefully remove from the pan.
I thought it would look boring with just powdered sugar on top, so I melted a few squares of a chocolate bar I had laying around an drizzled it over the bundt cake.
Then dusted it with powdered sugar.
I brought the cake into work and people seemed to like it (who doesn’t love a piece of chocolate cake?), but I wouldn’t waste your money on this cake mix! It probably costs less then $5 to just make one yourself.
