Bundt cakes baby!

Tonight is our banquet to support the crisis pregnancy center in our area. I have volunteered the last couple of years to help with the homemade desserts that are served at all 800+ place settings. We have 3 teams who help coordinate and secure desserts for the evening. Last year I made quite a few of the 240 pieces I was responsible for. It is an easy way for me to give to a great cause. This year many of the moms who are in my co-op group have sweetly volunteered their services and "yummy" baked goods for tonight. I made 8 bundt cakes yesterday--I know one is missing from the photo-- we ate it! Bundt cakes are very easy and you can add things to them to enhance their flavor. Have you had a bundt cake lately? They are moist and very easy to slice. I made 8 different varieties, but one of our favorites is triple chocolate.
1 boxed chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1- 4 ounce pkg of INSTANT chocolate pudding
1 3/4 cup of milk
6-12 ounces of chocolate chips
Combine all ingredients by hand and pour into a well greased bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes depending on your oven. The cake should spring back to the touch when it is done--if you don't have a cake tester. You can eat this as is and it is wonderful with coffee. For an added sweetness-dust with powdered sugar(very pretty). If you want a chocolate overload make a ganache to drizzle over it. Wow! That is some serious chocolate!
