Using a cake mix saves time, and it always delivers a moist no-fail cake. I make this every year since it’s the birthday of one of my best friends.

Super Easy St. Patrick’s Day Chocolate Stout Bundt Cake
- 1 box super moist chocolate cake mix, I used Betty Crocker
- 1 1/4 cups stout beer
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 tsp instant espresso or instant coffee mixed with 2 Tbsp boiling water, optional, this gives a bigger depth of chocolate flavor
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup / 4 ounces melted white chocolate, I like Wilton candy Melts, Almond Bark, or white chocolate bark. White chips don’t melt properly.
- 1/4 cup green sprinkles or nonpareils, optional
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a nonstick (it is important to have a nonstick pan for this recipe) Bundt pan with flour cooking spray or vegetable oil cooking spray, set aside.
- Make the cake batter following the directions on the back of the box using ingredients listed above. Make sure when done beating, use a rubber spatula to dig deep to incorporate all loose dry mix into batter.
- Pour into prepared pan and even out. Bake for about 45 to 55 minutes. Turn pan around after 20 minutes. Check after 45 minutes. Using a wooden skewer or toothpick check for dry or no crumbs. Cake should spring back when lightly touched on the top. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 20 to 30 minutes. Then invert onto the wire rack. Let cool completely.
- Place on a serving plate. Heat chocolate in a microwave safe measuring cup or bowl on 30 second intervals. Stir between heating again. Try not to over heat. Using a spoon or a fork, drizzle over cake. While frosting is still warm, toss on your decorations.
