German Chocolate Bundt Cake

When life is crazy and you need a quick, easy dessert, you can’t go wrong with German Chocolate Bundt Cake.

Personally, I am not a fan of store bought frosting, but it is what makes this recipe so easy. Plus, baking the frosting into the cake elevates it and masks that store bought taste. The only way that your guests will know that they are eating store bought frosting baked into a cake mix is if you decide to tell them.

Mix It Up & Create New Flavors

The beauty of this recipe is that you can mix it up to suit your own taste. You can use any flavor cake mix with any flavor frosting.

Not a fan of coconut pecan frosting? No worries! Make it a double chocolate cake by using fudge frosting instead. Or try cream cheese frosting.

Create a whole new flavor profile by using a yellow cake mix rather than chocolate with the coconut pecan frosting.

Make your family or guests really happy and drizzle the cake with caramel before serving.
