This Easy Chocolate Camping Cake is delicious and ridiculously simple to make.

Whip one up today and dig your fork into a wonderfully moist, chocolaty cake in under 45 minutes! It’s seriously sinful.

I love chocolate cake, and I love easy recipes and this Easy Chocolate Camping Cake fits the mold for both and tastes incredible. 

It is actually an oldie but goodie from this blog, a part of the Secret Recipe Club wayyyyyy back when.

Now defunct, the Secret Recipe Club doesn’t exist anymore.  

Tina, who originally created the Easy Chocolate Camping Cake (and I have no idea where she got it from), no longer blogs.

We are friends and have been for years, but I truly miss her fun recipes – always super easy and creative and full of deliciousness!

But at least this recipe among a few others of hers, live on. That’s really all that matters.

My photography has improved immensely since this original recipe was posted, BUT I love these photos anyway and I wanted to keep them up for prosperity.

I guess maybe someday I will remake the recipe with new photos, but for now – these are just as great.

Easy Chocolate Camping Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Make the pudding according to the directions on the box.
  3. Then add the dry cake mix to the cooked pudding and mix well. Don’t add anything else.
  4. Pour it into a greased 9×13 pan, sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts.
  5. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Check with a toothpick for doneness.
  6. Cut & Serve!

Hi, could this be made in advance, frozen and then defrosted on the day you need it?

I am unsure how the consistency of the cake would hold up after being frozen. I have never frozen this cake so I can't speak from experience. If you do decide to try it out, I hope you'll come back and let us know how it worked out after freezing! Enjoy!

Why in the world is it called a "Camping Cake"?? It looks absolutely irresistible, but I was so disappointed when I realized that I probably can't make it over a campfire this weekend. But I will print it off and make it at home for the next birthday celebration. It is very unique. Thanks for sharing. ;)

I really don't know the reasoning behind the name. It was what a friend of mine called it, so I kept the name. After analyzing the recipe, I'm pretty sure it was originally a campfire/camping cake but she modified it so she could make it at home. It resembles other actual campfire cakes I've seen.
