  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the remaining frosting mix and flour, mixing just until incorporated. Fold in the nuts.

  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes. The top of the cake will form a brownie like crust before it is done. Allow to cool for 60 minutes in the pan, then cool completely on a wire rack before glazing.

  • To make the chocolate glaze: Mix together reserved 3/4 cup frosting mix and 2 tablespoons boiling water, stirring until smooth. Thin with additional boiling water if necessary to reach desired consistency. Spoon glaze over the cooled cake.

I made this recently for my nephew's special birthday. My mother used to make the mix when he was very young he loved it. Well this did not turn out very well...no "tunnel" at all. However was it because I did not fold in walnuts instead mixed them in with mixer? Also my new bundt pan is brown; manufacturer did not mention anything about lowering oven temperature; I believe I should have. This cake was so heavy and turned out on the dry side like a big brownie. I've looked at other versions want to try Tunnel of Fudge Cake IV next time and will lower oven temperature by 25 degrees. Just disappointed. Read More

I used to make this cake often and everyone loved it. I don't think they make the packaged icing anymore though. If the person who put this on or anyone else knows if they still make it please write a review giving me that information. Or tell me what you use instead of it. Read More
