A&U Cook | Best Boxed Chocolate Cake Ever!

Hello everyone!!!


Hope you all are doing great! Today I want to share with everyone one of the best boxed cakes the husband and I have ever tried. While most bloggers will only share “from scratch” homemade desserts, I feel for the quick dessert fix or just to have the “semi-homemade” feel a boxed cake does the trick.

The husband is a big fan of cake, so we always have a few “boxed” cakes at home which the husband reminds on a weekly basis to make for him. So a few weeks ago I surprised the husband with Duncan Hines Triple Chocolate cake and it was the. best. cake. ever! We really had to resist eating this cake in one sitting.

It was quite easy to make, as are most boxed cakes–so here it goes! First, here is a picture of the box so you can find it at your local grocery store.


You will need the following:

Water, 3 large eggs, vegetable oil (or substitute apple sauce for less fat), one small mixing bowl, one large mixing bowl, cake/cupcake pan, and measuring spoons.


First pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F, grease and flour the pan. Then follow the instructions on the back of the box which are in 3 easy steps.


Stir contents of small pouch to make this fudgy mixture in a small bowl, and set aside.


Then take the bigger bowl and mix in the rest of the dry ingredients.


In the bigger bowl, mix in eggs, water, and oil. Mix everything together until it becomes a smooth mixture (you can easily hand mix the mixture).


Pour the mixture in your desired pan, like so.


Randomly, spread the fudgy mixture on top.


Then spread it out, like marbling. But don’t overly spread it.IMG_1090

Put it to bake in your preheated oven. Baking time depends on the pan size you choose- about 30 minutes.


Take it out, let it cool, put your favorite icing on top, and enjoy! IMG_1106

Believe us this is one of the best boxed chocolate cake, and you will enjoy every bite of it. Literally!

Thank you for visiting and have a great weekend!
