Too Much Chocolate Cake!

and here it is……

delicious chocolate cake

Doesn't this look amazingly awesome?!!

If you love chocolate, this is for YOU!  It is very rich, but oh so mmm mmm good.  I’ve had people ask me if I bought it from the store (I think it’s because of the bundt pan look).  I’ve taken it to a few people’s houses for dessert when they have invited us over to dinner.  It’s not that expensive to make and it’s so delicious.

I got this from all recipes dot com from here.

Here is what you need:

ingredients for awesome cake

Buy this stuff at the store and you will be in for an awesome treat!!!

 

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package devil’s food cake mix
  • 1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
You also need a bundt pan.  In case you’re a clueless new baker, this is a bundt pan:

Here are the directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, oil, beaten eggs and water. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour batter into a well greased 12 cup bundt pan.
  • Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until top is springy to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool cake thoroughly in pan at least an hour and a half before inverting onto a plate.
The next important step is to take wax paper and cut it into 4 pieces to put on your platter. This is important for the drizzling step (which you’ll see and understand why in a minute).
wax paper in preparation to drizzle

I used four pieces of wax paper so that you can easily pull them away.

Once your cake is cooled, turn it over on your platter.  This is my cake after it cooled:

The next step is the drizzling!

  • Put your chocolate icing (about half of the container) in a zipper bag and push it to one of the bottom corners.
  • Microwave it for about 10-15 seconds.
  • Cut a really SMALL opening in the bottom corner where you put the icing (remember you can always cut more).
  • Drizzle away!

Make sure you cut a VERY small amount.

He is just going back and forth and left to right.

Drizzling all most finished. Notice he went back and forth all over the cake.

Pull away your wax paper and….. wahhhlaaaaa!  You’re done!  Doesn’t it look amazing?

Do it, go to store, pick up ingredients, make it, eat it, then run a couple of miles!!

    What brand is your pan? I can’t quite tell from the picture – is it two pieces?
