To celebrate my mother's birthday I made one of my family's favorite cakes. It is so easy and always turns out perfect! Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate! Yum.
Chocolate Chip Cake
1 (18oz) yellow cake mix with pudding
1 (4oz) instant chocolate pudding
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup water
4 large eggs
1 (8oz) sour cream
1 (6oz) chocolate chips
Combine the first three ingredients and stir with wire whisk until smooth. Add oil and next three ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into greased and floured bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Cool in pan 10 minutes.
After the cake is cooled I make the following chocolate glaze for the top.
4 oz chocolate chips
3 TBSP butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 TBSP hot water
Melt chocolate chips and butter over low heat. Remove and stir in powdered sugar and water. Stir in additional water if needed to reach drizzling consistency. Spoon over cake.
