This is THE BEST Chocolate Cake you will ever eat....
Sometimes when you google stuff....like Recipes for Famous Dave's corn bread muffins, you realize the lies that are told on the internet! But this....THIS.....this is the sweetest truth I have ever found. In all seriousness, this really is the best, most amazing chocolate cake. I took it to work and everyone raved. One of my coworkers even said it tasted like a $50 cake. I think that means it's good and would be expensive if one purchased it.
1 box devil's food cake mix
1 pkg jello instant pudding mix (fudge flavor)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups mini semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a big bowl, and mix everything except the chocolate chips. The batter is thick! Mix in the chips and poor batter into 2 9" cake pans. Make sure to grease the bans with white Crisco...don't flour them or dust with cocoa there is no need...but I would not use butter or butter flavored Crisco...just plain ol white nasty Crisco, the cakes will pop right out.
Add 10 mins to the box bake time...just check it with a toothpick, but remember you have tons of chocolate chips in there so they could fake you out when your cake is done.
I doubled the recipe to make a 3 layer cake that I took to work...then we had the top layer for home.
You could use a butter cream frosting, but I find the white "whipped" frosting out of the can is the best with this cake, butter cream is just too sweet and I think chocolate would be to much as well. ORRRRR...just go ahead and kill yourself with a rich cream cheese frosting.
