Chocolate cake is great. Brownies are great. But what happens when you put them together?
Magic. Pure magic.
And also your coworkers ask you if you're trying to kill them.
Of course not. I need my guinea pigs. (Said with all of the affection in the world.)
The theme for this month's Bundt Bakers is chocolate and I scrolled through some chocolate cake recipes, none of them really appealing to me and then I found a chocolate brownie cake. How in the world did I not know this existed before then? What could be better than a chocolate cake? Simple: a chocolate brownie cake.

- 1 17.6 box fudge brownie mix
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup oil
- ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
- ½ cup prepared coffee cooled
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
For the Glaze:
- 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
- heaping ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon corn syrup
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1-3 tablespoon water
- 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bundt pan with baking spray.
- 2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the chocolate cake mix, fudge brownie mix, eggs, water, oil, applesauce, coffee, and vanilla and mix until combined.
- 3. Pour into the prepared bundt pan and bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- 4. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before inverting over a wire cooling rack to continue cooling.
