Chocolate Butter Cake

Chocolate Butter Cake is a rich chocolate cake that starts with a cake mix. It’s full of butter and has a gooey chocolate butter sauce poured all over the top. This is the perfect easy cake recipe!

Thanks to Challenge Dairy, I’m using some of the best butter to make this rich and gooey Chocolate Butter Cake!

I think Bundt cakes are my favorite ones to make: they’re easy to throw together and they finish off so pretty without a thick frosting!

Last year I made a Lemon Butter Cake and a Key Lime Butter Cake and they were both huge hits so I decided to make a CHOCOLATE Butter Cake too. This easy cake is rich and thick and topped with a buttery chocolate glaze that soaks into the warm cake. If you love chocolate this is the cake for you!!

What is a butter cake?

Not to be confused with a gooey butter cake, the St. Louis specialty, a butter cake like this one is also called a Kentucky Butter Cake. Traditionally, it’s a rich buttery pound cake that’s soaked with a sugary buttery syrup when it comes out of the oven.

When I made the lemon and lime butter cakes, I added citrus to the cake and the syrup. For this chocolate version I added – you guessed it – CHOCOLATE!

An easy Chocolate Butter Cake starts with a cake mix and is infused with butter and lots of chocolate, then glazed with a rich chocolate topping while it’s hot!

While I love making chocolate cake from scratch, I also love using cake mix. It makes my life easier, especially when I’m making a Bundt cake. Bundt and pound cake recipes are different from your traditional chocolate cake so when you’re in a pinch and need a cake, starting this with a cake mix is the way to go.

This chocolate butter cake recipe starts with cake mix but it’s doctored so much no one will know you started with a box mix!

I love doctoring cake mix! It’s so easy to add flavor and change up ingredients to make them taste really homemade.

How do you make cake mix taste like it’s from scratch?
