The BEST chocolate bundt cake




I found this recipe on The Sister's Cafe, and just the picture alone had me sold. This cake is even more delicious than it looks and is SOOO rich and chocolatey. If you even kind of like chocolate cake, you'll love this recipe. It doesn't hurt that it's incredibly simple to make too! Happy Valentine's day to you!


Ingredients

1 devils food cake mix
1 -4 serving instant chocolate pudding mix
4 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
½ cup warm water
½ cup vegetable oil
1 ½ cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions

Place all ingredients except chocolate chips, in a large mixing bowl. Blend with electric mixer 1 minute.Stir down sides. Continue to mix on medium speed for 2-3 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared bundt pan. Bake 45-50 minutes at 350. Cool 20 minutes. Invert onto serving platter.

Frosting:
8 Tbsp butter (not margarine)
4 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/3 cup evaporated milk (I used 2%-it worked great)
4 cups sifted powdered sugar

Melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Whisk in cocoa and milk. Bring mixture just to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Beat in powdered sugar with electric mixer until thickened and smooth. Pour warm frosting over warm cake. This recipe makes a lot of frosting.
