A Word About Walnuts And Raisins
Okay, so the original recipe calls for walnuts and raisins. I dont normally like raisins in baked goods, but I dont mind them in this cake. If you dont like them, leave them out it will not be a problem.
Now about the walnuts. I like the flavor and texture walnuts add to this recipe, but I noticed that the walnuts in this recipe when cooked in a bundt pan have a tendency to sink to the bottom. This isnt a huge issue but some of them will stick to the pan and leave little divets in your cake . My suggestion is to chop them smaller/finer then you normally would and that will help them not sink so much.
Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake Glaze
Simple to make with only three ingredients with a variety of uses. Great to use over Bundt cake because it sets up nicely. The extra sauce may be refrigerated and reheated to serve over ice cream or your favorite dessert. I came up with this once when I didn’t have any confectioner’s sugar to make a glaze for a Bundt cake.

- In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. Cook, stirring constantly, until the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. Do not allow it to bubble.

How To Frost Mini Bundt Cakes
I watched a news clip from a local morning show recently, and one of the managers from Nothing Bundt Cakes was on the show sharing how they frost their cakes! It isnt rocket science, but I still found it helpful.
- The first thing you need is a good frosting. Dont worry, Ive got you covered . Cream cheese frosting is creamy and perfect for frosting bundt cakes. I find it easier to work with than buttercream frosting.
- Youll also need a #12 frosting tip and a disposable icing bag. Trim the bottom of the icing bag just enough to be able to slide the tip inside. Alternately, if you have a frosting coupler you can use one. I like using a coupler because I think it creates a better seal without any frosting leakage from the bottom.
- Begin icing from the BOTTOM and work your way up, ending in the center of the bundt hole. Frost on each side of the ridge. You can see in the photo above that I am icing the right side of the ridge. After that I iced the left side. Any excess frosting falls into the bundt hole. Then I swirled a small circle to close up each hole. For a step by step guide, see my video above!
Nothing Bundt Love For Their Cakes
Since my craving didn’t allow me to place an order in advance, I scoured the interwebs for the Nothing Bundt Cakes secret recipe that makes the cake so moist.

Thanks to some pantry staples, we ended up with our take on their classic vanilla bundt cake, with the addition of some chocolate chips because, again, #kids.
Feel free to leave those out if you want to stay true to the OG classic vanilla recipe.

Step Four: Make The Glaze
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and then add in brown sugar and stir until the sugar has melted.
Add in the confectioners sugar and take off the heat.
Keep mixing until thick and then add in milk to create a loose glaze. If its still looking a little too thick, keep adding a 1/2 tsp of milk at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
Note: This glaze hardens quickly, so only make it right when the cake has cooled and youre ready to pour it over the bundt cake.

How Close Did We Get To The Original Nothing Bundt Cake Chocolate Chocolate Chip
Our version of Nothing Bundt Cakes Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake was nothing short of phenomenal. The combination of eggs, sour cream, and mayonnaise was the perfect recipe for keeping the cake batter light and moist.
When it came to chocolate flavor, this cake certainly had it. The chocolate pudding was rich, and the chocolate chips melted in your mouth as you took a bite. When you combined that ultra-rich chocolate flavor with the sweet, slightly tangy cream cheese frosting, it almost tasted like an Oreo cookie.
Did they have a leg up on us when it came to decoration? Perhaps. The frosting on our cake was a little clunky looking compared to the original, but these guys are experts who frost cakes every single day. From afar, you really couldn’t tell that our version wasn’t made in a professional kitchen. Up close, you might see a few imperfections, but they won’t matter once you dig in and take a bite.
Can You Make This Carrot Cake Without A Bundt Pan
The reason I chose to make this Carrot Cake Bundt Cake is that I have seen this Good Cook 9.5 inch Nonstick Fluted Cake Pan in so many local grocery stores and always thought it was gorgeous. This tin is readily available, and I bet if you pop down to your local grocery youll find it.
If you dont want to use this shaped pan, this best carrot cake recipe can be made into 2 large loaf tins or as a layer cake. While the recipe is super versatile, I think its most impressive and tasty as a bundt cake.

Nothing Bundt Cakes Lemon Cake Copycat
Nothing Bundt Cakes are a dense, rich, moist cake with a thick cream cheese frosting. Sometimes I frost this cake like the store as seen here on our Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake. This looks pretty, but I always feel like someone gets short-changed if they dont get the big blob of frosting on their slice. To prevent this, I sometimes frost the whole cake as pictured above. There is always plenty of frosting and I pile the extra in the middle so there is added frosting on each piece when I slice it.
Mix The Cake Ingredients Together For Your Nothing Bundt Cakes Copycat Recipe
Okay, it’s time to get started making our Nothing Bundt Cakes copycat recipe. There are two sections of this recipe: the bundt cake and the frosting. We’ll start with the cake ingredients. Because we’re using a prepared cake mix, this process is very simple. Simply add the ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer: the devil’s food cake mix, chocolate instant pudding, sour cream, mayonnaise, eggs, water, and canola. We’ll leave the chocolate chips out for now and add them in later.
Mix the cake using the paddle attachment of a stand mixer. If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can mix the cake with a spoon or use a hand mixer. You’re looking to fully incorporate the flour without overmixing. It’s okay if there are some lumps, but you don’t want to see any dry bits of flour.
When the batter has come together, add the chocolate chips. Fold them into the batter gently using a silicone spatula or a large wooden spoon. Again, you don’t want to overmix the batter here, but we do want to distribute the chocolate chips throughout the cake mix.
