Bundt Cake Neapolitan

A cake that has three different flavors baked into it; vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. Just like Neapolitan ice cream!

  • 1 package (18.25 ounce) yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 TBS cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup strawberry jelly
  • 8 drops red food coloring
Add water, eggs, oil and cake mix in large bowl and mix on medium speed for two minutes. After batter is thoroughly mixed, divide it into three equal portions. Use oil spray in a bundt cake pan and pour one of the portions into it. Take one of the other portions and mix in the chocolate sauce and cocoa powder. Carefully spoon this mixture into the cake pan.  Take the last portion and mix in the strawberry jelly and food coloring. Carefully spoon this mixture into the pan. Do not swirl the mixtures together.

Put in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. When done, let cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Use a thin rubber or plastic spatula (a metal one will scratch the cake pan) and gently run it down each fluted side of the pan to loosen the cake. Place a large bowl over the pan, turn it over and let sit until the cake comes out of the pan.  Dust with powdered sugar or drizzle glaze over the cake:

White Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 TBS milk
  • 2 TBS softened butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
Combine all ingredients and stir until smooth. Pour over cake as desired.
