I remember this version of the tunnel of fudge cake recipe from years ago. It is fabulous and was the winner of the Pillsbury twenty five thousand dollar bake off back in the late sixtys or early seventys. The problem is I haven't been able to find the frosting mix and I understand that the original one made by Pillsbury is no longer available because all the frostings come in cans now. But no other recipe that I've tried for the tunnel of fudge cake compares to this one!



This is hands down the best chocolate cake ever! Mom used to make a version very close to this for decades. Since she passed and I can't find her recipe book this is the next best thing. Thanks!



When I made this, I left out the walnuts and lessened the sugar to a little under 1 cup. For the frosting, I used a dark chocolate frosting, so I thought it'd be sting enough. I'm not sure what made the chocolate flavor not come out in the final product, but next time I make this, I'll use the right amount of sugar and add some cocoa powder as well. Also, be sure that your eggs are up to room temp. I used mine right out of the fridge and it curdled the butter and made the batter look nasty and hard to work with :P other than my own mistakes, this is a great cake recipe: it's dense and chewy and not too too dry, but I'd recommend having this with vanilla (or chocolate) ice cream or some other type of topping. Used a chocolate coating instead of frosting, and it was great, but use frosting if possible.
