CHOCOLATE CREAM-FILLED BUNDT CAKE

I was looking for a new and easy Bundt Cake recipe when I came across this recipe on the Land O'Lakes website. I often go to brand name food sites and food associations for recipes. Let's face it, they have the foods we love and they develop recipes to utilize them. Land O'Lakes is more than just butter. Be sure and check out their website for information about Land O'Lakes.

So while I was checking out their recipes, I found this one for Chocolate Cream-Filled Bundt Cake. I've adapted the recipe a little. For original recipe, go Here.
