Chocolate Watergate Cake

I would like more information on the Chocolate Watergate cake. What is the chocolate syrup for and how long does the cake need to cook?

The archived recipe here sounds like a years old version of a recipe for Pistachio Cake (Maybe that's what it was called back then), and this one tells you what to do with the syrup. It's like a marble cake.

1 Pkg Yellow Cake Mix

4 eggs

1 cup orange juice

1/3 cup veg. oil

1 pkg. Instant pistachio pudding mix

1/2 cup Hershey's syrup

Blend cake mix, eggs, OJ, oil and pudding. Beat one minute on low to blend, then 3 minutes on high.

Pour 2/3 of the batter into a greased and floured bundt pan. Add the chocolate syrup to the remainder of batter, blend well and gently pour on tip of the other batter; marble the mixture as for marble cake.

Bake at 350 for one hour, or until springs back when touched. Cool 10-15 minutes in pan before removing.

  • 2 Tbsp. shortening

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, water, orange juice and oil. Beat on medium speed of an electric mixer for 2 minutes or until mixture is smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Grease a 12 cup Bundt pan (or tube pan) generously with shortening. Dust with flour and shake out excess.
