Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake

My middle son loves chocolate but my oldest is not so fond of it so I have always have to find a middle ground.  I found this Chocolate Bundt Cake that fits in the middle perfectly because it’s still chocolate but not as sweet as a chocolate cake.  We made this last night and it takes not time to prepare.  It was really good!


  • 1 c. Miracle Whip (no subs)
  • 1 c. water
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. Baking cocoa
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Confectioners sugar (optional)


In a mixing bowl, combine Miracle Whip, water, and vanilla.  Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt.  Add to Miracle Whip mixture and beat until mixed. Transfer to a greased and floured bundt pan.  Bake at 350′ for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack.   Dust with Confectioners sugar if you want.

    That looks yummy! I am always leary of this dessert recipes that call for mayo because I don’t normally like it.

    This sounds like it would work in my house too. Looks like a very dense type of cake.

    My mother always used to make this cake and it was my favorite. It’s great for when you need a cake but don’t have any eggs on hand.

    I’ll be honest…the Miracle Whip scares me. Are you sure you can’t sub it out and use a few eggs and a bit of oil? The cake looks great otherwise!

    Don’t let the Miracle Whip scare you. You can’t taste it at all. It makes a very moist cake. I’ve used it in other recipes and have gotten rave reviews.

    Miracle Whip? Hmm… Not sure I could do that, lol. :-) But I do love Chocolate Cake, so I’m tempted.
