Does anyone still have chocolate left over from Easter? If so I have the perfect way to make it go further AND taste even more yummy. Meet my Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bundt Cake.
The utterly mouth watering combination of Chocolate and Toffee all in one cake. If you enjoyed my Rolo Chocolate Cookies I’m pretty sure you’ll love this cake!
She is a beauty isn’t she?
This Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bundt Cake is baked in the Nordic Ware blossom Bundt tin, so I decided that this cake is a girl. Well female….. oh dear it’s late, I’ve gone off on a tangent and I’m waffling again!!
The blossom Bundt tin is one of my favourites. While the melted chocolate and bronze crunch on this Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bundt Cake look amazing, if you were pressed for time, a dusting of icing sugar and this cake would still win hearts – and tummies 😉
So what is it that makes this cake so easy??
Wright’s Baking Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix and their Toffee Cake Mix, combined.
Since the gorgeous fudgey chocolate works so well with the toffee, I honestly can’t believe that I didn’t think of it sooner.
Since I’ve already explained my stance on having a few, good quality packet mixes in the kitchen, while writing up my Chocolate Orange Citrus Bundt, no further mention is needed. This cake came about as I had 3/4 of a packet of each of the mixes left after testing their suitability for waffles. Although, only the Toffee Cake Mix made it through as my Toffee Banoffee Waffles
Choose Your Baking Method
- So you have a choice: weigh out 3/4 of each packet mix (375g) add together and make up according to adjusted packet instructions: 150ml per mix = 300ml of water and 3 tablespoons of oil per mix = 6 tablespoons.
- Or, mix both whole packets together and make up according to double the packet instructions. So 400ml of water and 8 tablespoons of oil. Fill the Bundt to the desired level and use the leftover batter to bake some cupcakes.
- Altenatively, a 10″ springform cake tin would be the right size to bake 2 complete packets of mix made up as per option 2.
So many choices! Also, I would like to add that investing in one Bundt tin is worth it, especially if cake decorating skills are not your strongest gift. Because the tins really do make any cake look beautiful, including this Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bundt Cake.
Recipe: Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bundt Cake serves 10
1 Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix from Wright’s Baking
1 Toffee Cake Mix from Wright’s Baking
8tbsp Vegetable Oil (6tbsp if making option 1)
Cake Release Spray – I use Wilton’s OR butter and baking parchment for greasing and lining a 10″ cake tin
150g/5oz Milk Chocolate
Toffee Sprinkles or the Bronze Crunch which I bought from Waitrose – or a Crunchie bar broken up.
Making The Cake Batter
Preheat the oven to 160C/140C fan, gas mark 2
- First of all, decide which option you will use to bake your cake.
- Prepare the Bundt by spraying with cake release. Alternatively grease and line a springform cake tin.
- Into a large bowl add the required amount of water and vegetable oil.
- Add both the chocolate fudge and toffee packet mixes – remembering to weigh out 375g ONLY, from each packet if using Option 1.
- Whisk according to packet instructions.
- Pour the chocolate/toffee cake batter into the prepared tin. The Bundt tin should be no more than two thirds full.
Baking The Bundt Cake
- Place the Bundt tin in the middle of the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes – note: the baking time will be longer if using more cake batter.
- The cake is cooked when an inserted skewer comes out clean.
- As soon as the cake is baked, remove from the oven.
- Allow the cake to cool in the Bundt tin for 10 minutes.
- Place a cooling rack on top of the cake and flip over.
- Remove the Bundt tin and admire the beautiful cake!
Decorating The Bundt Cake
- Allow the cake to cool completely before decorating.
- Break up the milk chocolate and place into a heatproof, microwaveable bowl.
- Zap for 30 seconds at a time in the microwave, stirring after each zap!
- When the chocolate is almost melted, remove from the microwave and keep stirring, until it is completely melted.
- Use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the Bundt cake.
- Finish with some delicious sprinkles. Alternatively, a crushed Crunchie bar would work beautifully with this cake.
Allow the chocolate to almost set before serving. Finally, the combination of toffee pieces and the delicious chocolate fudge work together so well in this Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bundt Cake.

The Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bundt Cake was given to very dear friends, who had just lost a loved one. Simply making and giving a cake, during a time of grief, is one way to show you care. While nothing can replace their loss, or mend their heartbreak, taking time to bake a cake, which they can then share with visitors, brought a smile to our friends face when it was delivered.
So, whatever you are making, baking and creating in your kitchens, have fun preparing and sharing your feast.
