Delicious Chocolate Cake
If you are a chocoholic then you should check out this recipe from little birdies secrets I made it last night and it was delicious. It wasn't to hard either. I made it with a devils food cake mix instead of with a chocolate cake mix and I added a little bit more water to the glaze because it was kind of thick. The batter for the cake is much thicker than normal cake batter so it is a good idea to stick with a bunt pan unless you want gooey center. I liked it so much I am making it again for my daughters birthday party on Saturday.
1 chocolate cake mix
1 small package (3.4 oz) chocolate pudding
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients except nuts and chips on low until well blended. Beat 2 minutes on high. Add nuts and chips. Pour into greased and floured bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 55-65 minutes. Cool cake 10 minutes then turn out onto platter. Glaze with the following recipe.
1 bar (2 oz) semi-sweet baking chocolate
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 T. butter
2 T. water
1 tsp. vanilla
Melt chocolate and butter in microwave 30 seconds at a time until smooth and melted. Cool. Add powdered sugar alternately with water. Add vanilla. Pour over cake.
