For the Cake:

  • 1 Chocolate Fudge cake mix with pudding in the mix around 15 ounce package
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1 egg
  • cup sugar
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

For the glaze:

  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • cup heavy whipping cream


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • For the cake: Place the cake mix, sour cream, water, oil and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Beat 2 to 3 minutes more until combined.
  • Pour ⅔ of the batter in a greased and floured 12 cup bundt pan.
  • Mix together filling ingredients. Spread filling over the batter and top with remaining batter
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes until the cake springs back when lightly pressed and is starting to pull away from the sides of the pan.
  • Cool on wire rack for 20 min, invert it onto a rack and cool 20 minutes more.
  • For the glaze, combine the chocolate chips and heavy whipping cream in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture has thickened slightly, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Place the cake on a serving platter and drizzle the warm glaze over it. (I usually just melt the chips with the cream in the microwave, put the glaze in a Ziploc, cut the corner and drizzle it over the cake.)
  • Store cake covered in the refrigerator.
