Ingredients

CAKE

  • 15.25 ounce box Chocolate Cake Mix I used this brand
  • 15 ounce package Coconut-Pecan Frosting I used this
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs beaten

CHOCOLATE FROSTING

  • 1/4 cup butter salted or unsalted, I use this
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder I use this brand
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract I use this brand
  • 3 and ½ cup confectioners sugar sifted
  • Garnish: 1/3 cup chopped pecans 1/4 cup coconut flakes

Instructions

CAKE

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease and flour a 10-cup bundt pan. You can grease and flour, use non-stick spray, or I absolutely love this cake release product from Wilton!
  • Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and milk. Beat well.
  • Add frosting and stir until combined.
  • Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean or with dry crumbs.
  • Cool 15 minutes in the pan before inverting to a serving platter to cool completely.
  • Frost cool cake with chocolate frosting.

CHOCOLATE FROSTING

  • Sift sugar.
  • Heat butter in a small pan on medium heat, do not let the butter get brown.
  • When butter is melted, whisk in cocoa, milk, and vanilla. Add sugar 1/2 cup at a time, whisking after each addition.
  • Remove from heat, after the sugar has been added.
  • Whisk until smooth.
  • Immediately pour over cake.
  • If icing is too thin, add additional sifted sugar 1/4 cup at a time until desired thickness or sit it in the refrigerator a few minutes. Take it out and whisk it until creamy again.
  • Frosting will thicken as it cools, but it'll be harder to spread.
