It’s the holidays and when better to splurge on eating chocolate, cakes and cookies??? That’s what New Years resolutions are all about, losing the weight from the holiday festivities. I was going to a Christmas Day party and was asked to bring a dessert, I thought I’d be original and make a chocolate cake thinking chocolate would be original. I was wrong, chocolate was the main ingredient for all the desserts, there were chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate cakes, brownies and cookies, silly me.
Nonetheless, I tried this recipe and I have to say it was very good and super easy to make. The “death by chocolate” comes from 3 different types of chocolate, chocolate cake mix, chocolate pudding and chocolate chips, does it get any better than that? The recipe I found was on food.com and I did modify the recipe by the espresso powder, if you do not have expresso powder you can use instant coffee or you can just omit the coffee altogether, the coffee brings out the flavor of the chocolate, I even use it in my Red Velvet Cake (secret ingredient :))
You basically put your eggs, water, oil and sour cream in a bowl
then I creamed them until they were light in color
I added the cake mixes
mixed really good and added my chocolate chips (I folded the chocolate chips in)
I thought it would be nice in a bundt pan
I put it in the oven and baked it for about 48 minutes and here it is…YUMMY!
Do not follow the cake package instructions for this recipe as this is a modified recipe. I filled my centers with chocolate wafer cookies but for valentines, you can fill them with chocolate kisses. I’m not a huge bundt cake person but I liked how it looked…I will note changes to my next bundt cake recipe a I did learn a few things.
