Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 1 hour 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour 45 min
Yields: 1 bundt cake


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp butter flavor
  • 1 package of Baker's german chocolate
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 300 degrees. Soften the chocolate in an oven safe dish. Use Cricsco shortening on a paper towel to thoroughly grease the inside of a bundt pan. Flour the surface lightly and dump the excess in the trash.
  2. Combine all ingredients, adding the softened chocolate last. Pour batter into your prepared pan. Tap on the counter to ensure an even distribution.

The sides of the cake cover will pull in and the moisture will remain in the contanier, keeping the cake perfectly moist. Wipe out condensation after the cake has cooled.
