Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake

It is nearing the end of May which means that in about 2 weeks, I am totally screwed.  I have not scheduled any camps which means “Mom, I’m bored” is going to echo through these halls.  Today I am simply focused on making it through final tests and presentations, recitals, baseball games (most of which have been rained out), etc. etc.

Since I am now the Iron Chef of bundt cakes, I made another one using Krista’s recipe.  Yum!  Except that the first time I made it, I turned it over too soon and the pan didn’t release the cake so it broke in half and David affectionately named the blob on the platter the doo-doo cake (but it tastes really good).  Nice – good role modeling.


  1. Chocolate box cake mix, like Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines 
  2. 8 oz sour cream
  3. 12 oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, like Nestle Toll House
  4. Chocolate pudding mix (i.e., Jell-O chocolate instant pudding and pie filling, 3.9 oz.)
  5. Vegetable oil
  6. Eggs
  7. Powdered sugar

Follow directions on chocolate cake box (this time I used Betty Crocker Super Moist cake mix so this included adding water, vegetable oil and eggs) and then add in pudding mix (only the powder mix – don’t actually make pudding), sour cream, chocolate chips.   

Bake at 325 (or 350 – depending on your cake pan – refer to the cake mix box) for 50-55 minutes.  Test for doneness.  Allow to cool before inverting bundt pan to release the cake. Generously sprinkle with powdered sugar (or ice with cream cheese frosting)
