My recipe was adapted from a cookbook called Easy Bake Sale Recipes. Have I mentioned that I love all kinds of cookbooks?
Strawberry Pound Cake
1 package (18.25 ounce) strawberry cake mix
1 package (3.4 ounce) instant vanilla pudding
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 (10 ounce) Chocolate Amazing Glazes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour or use nonstick cooking spray to prepare a 10-inch Bundt pan.
Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water, and oil in a large mixing bowl. Beat at low speed with an electric mixer until moistened. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 25 minutes. Invert onto cooling rack. Cool completely. Drizzle glaze over top of cooled cake.
A few extra ingredients can turn a cake mix into a pound cake.
After baking, cool cake in pan for 25 minutes, then invert on cooling rack until completely cooled.
I'm not sure how long this product, Amazing Glazes, has been around, but I had not tried it until today. I saw it at the grocery store and decided to use it to glaze the pound cake. It was very easy to use. You just uncap the bottle and heat in the microwave for 35 seconds, then recap and shake. That's really all the prep there is to this glaze, and it's ready to pour on the cake. It was smooth and drizzled very well. I used about half the bottle today, and the directions say to refrigerate and reheat the leftovers in the bottle to use again.
Oh, and the most important part, it has a good chocolate taste!
