This Chocolate Milk Bundt Cake? Y’all, it’s seriously life changing. I know, I know, that’s crazy talk, but it truly is one shockingly good cake.

I had the idea for this cake, but didn’t have too high of hopes. The idea sounds perfect, but I thought it would taste like every other chocolate cake…not like chocolate milk. Then I took my first bite and guess what?

IT TASTES JUST LIKE CHOCOLATE MILK!!!

I quickly sliced up this Chocolate Milk Bundt Cake and started giving it out to all the neighbors who were coming home from work. After my first bite, I absolutely could not be trusted alone with this cake in my house.

Without me even saying a word, two people guessed that the cake had chocolate milk in it! Everyone was begging for the recipe and couldn’t believe how easy it was to make.

I promise, this is going to be your new favorite chocolate cake recipe!

I used our new favorite, a2 Milk® Chocolate 2% Reduced Fat Milk, to make this Chocolate Milk Bundt Cake. In case you haven’t heard of it, a2 Milk® is a complete line of 100% real, naturally easy to digest milk including Whole, 2%, 1% and Chocolate Milk that even those with milk sensitivities can enjoy!

Conventional cows’ milk, and majority of the milk consumed in the U.S., contains both A1 and A2 proteins. Research suggests that the A1 protein is the culprit of causing digestive discomfort. The girls sometimes suffer from upset stomachs after having milk, but since switching we thankfully haven’t been having any more issues.

Luckily, a2 Milk® comes from identified cows that naturally only produce the A2 protein (and none of the A1 protein). Thanks to The a2 Milk Company™, people with milk sensitivities, including perceived lactose intolerance, can now enjoy the taste and nutritional benefits of real dairy milk!

They are the leading milk brand in Australia and recently launched in Florida in Publix stores, which is where I found it. Additionally, a2 Milk® is completely free of any added hormones, rBST and antibiotics so you can feel good about giving it to your family.

 

This Chocolate Milk Bundt Cake is really quick and easy to whip up and then into the oven it goes. Give it a few minutes to cool, invert it onto a cake plate, and try to keep yourself from inhaling it!

I promise you are going to LOVE this chocolate cake!

    I think it’s a good batter, but like the others my mini chips stuck to the pan and sunk to the bottom. It didn’t ruin the cake a bit. Next time I may leave the chips out and do a chocolate sundae drizzle on top.

    Cake was delish! Make exactly per directions except for milk. I used choc almond milk as i had it on hand. I probably wont make again because of the disaster….. Batter was very very thin and soupy, choc chips went straight to bottom of pan where they melted and stuck in the bottom. So when i turned my cake out they stuck & ripped the top off my cake.

  3. Ruby

    I’m a notoriously bad cake maker. There was no exception for this one, unfortunately. I’m not sure what I’m doing incorrectly. I followed the directions exactly. With the measurements given, the batter was thin so the chocolate chips all sank to the bottom. Not sure what went wrong there. Also, I may have left the cake in too long. Any suggestions?

    I wish the Novice Chef would have mentioned the issue with the chocolate chips, or I had listened to Sandy in the comment above. Chocolate chips sunk to bottom of pan (top of cake) making it difficult to remove from the pan. Easy to make, not a lot of ingredients (my kind of recipe) flavor was good, texture somewhat coarse and even though I stored it in an air tight container by the second day it had dried out some. A little disappointing. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I just made this bundt cake. Followed directions and also put chocolate chips in some flour. Would not come out of pan. The chocolate chips all sank to the top. When I removed the cake it stuck and the top half of cake stayed in pan. It’s tastes good but the cake is not. Very disappointed in this recipe!

    My boyfriend’s family has a dairy and their own creamery, so I’m going to make this with their fresh bottled chocolate milk today! If you’re having problems with chocolate chips sinking to the bottom and making your cake stick to the pan try this…
    Pour 1/3 of cake batter into pan without chocolate chips, take the remaining batter mix your chips in and then finish filling pan. This is what I do with any bundy cake recipe that calls for chocolate chips. Works like a charm! 

  7. Diane DiMascio Wright

    Half of my cake stuck in the pan! But I patched it together and my husband and I ate the whole darn thing! It is so delicious! I will make it again and hope for better results in birthing it out of the pan! 

  8. Lexi Keeney

    I made this cake and did not put the chocolate chips in but I followed the directions to a T, minus the choc chips. My cake sunk in. What did I do wrong? 

  9. Yolanda Gloster

    I followed the directions completely but my chocolate chips settled at the bottom of the bundt pan, therefore, they all were at the top of the cake when I turned it out the pan once cooled. What happened? Has anyone ever said that this had happened to them before? The cake was DELISH and I want to try again, so any suggestions on how not to have my chips do that again? Thanks

    This cake is tasty, but for some reason, all the chocolate chips sunk to the bottom and left a big gooey mess that wouldn’t come out of the bundt cake pan.

  11. Jen

    Mmmmm! This cake is super easy and really delicious! We do not have the brand of chocolate milk you mentioned so I substituted with the chocolate milk our store carries. The cake was very moist!

  12. Maryanne | the little epicurean

    Gimme all the chocolate milk! This sounds fantastic. I’ve seeing A2 milk at the market. It’s time to give it a try!

      Hi Donna, if you have to substitute, I would make sure whatever you get is a creamier, thicker milk. a2 Milk® Chocolate 2% Reduced Fat Milk is pretty thick and creamy and is what gives the cake such a great crumb. 

    1. Jessica

      Hi Virginia! I believe it would work fine. I personally don’t have a ton of experience with sugar substitutes, but whatever you usually use should work fine in this recipe. 

    1. Jessica

      Hi Dawn, yes as long as your family doesn’t have adverse reactions to regular chocolate milk, it can be used.
