Tunnel Of Fudge Cake

Here's another, an updated old-time favorite.


Ella Helfrich's Tunnel of Fudge cake, which won second place in the 17th annual Pillsbury Bake-Off in 1966, gave H. David Dalquist's Bundt pan national exposure and made it one of the most popular baking pans in the world. Pillsbury no longer makes one of the original ingredients and offers this revised version of the much-requested recipe.

1¾ cups sugar
1¾ cups margarine or butter, softened
6 eggs
2 cups powdered sugar
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa
2 cups chopped walnuts*

¾ cup powdered sugar
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
4 to 6 teaspoons milk


1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 12-cup Bundt pan or 10-inch tube pan.

2. In large bowl, combine sugar and margarine; beat until light and fluffy.

3. Add eggs one at a time, beating well.

4. Gradually add 2 cups powdered sugar; blend well.

5. By hand, stir in flour and remaining cake ingredients until well blended.

6. Spoon batter into greased and floured pan; spread evenly.

7. Bake at 350°F for 45 to 50 minutes or until top is set and edges are beginning to pull away from edge of pan.**

8. Cool upright in pan on wire rack 1 1/2 hours; invert onto serving plate. Cool for at least 2 hours more.

9. In small bowl, combine all glaze ingredients, adding enough milk for desired drizzling consistency.

10. Spoon over top of cake, allowing some to run down sides. Store tightly covered.

*Nuts are essential for the success of this recipe.

**Since this cake has a soft filling, an ordinary doneness test cannot be used. Accurate oven temperature and baking times are essential.

High altitude (Above 3,000 ft.): Increase flour by 3 tablespoons. Bake as directed above.
