This is one of my childhood favorites. Foodies, don't scoff at the fact that I used cake mix. This is still a delicious cake and an added bonus is that It's incredibly easy to make.
Step 1: Ingredients
8oz sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
Duncan Hines Devil's food mix
Instant pudding (small package)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tbs cocoa powder
strawberries for garnish
Step 2: Mix Everything Together
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the oil, water, sour cream, and eggs in a large bowl using a hand mix. Next, add the cake mix then the instant pudding. Once the batter is smooth, add the chocolate chips.
Step 3: Prepare the Pan
Coat a bundt pan with grease (I've found that butter works best, but vegetable oil or spray also work). Cover the grease with a layer of cocoa powder. You can use flour in place of the cocoa powder, but I like cocoa powder because it doesn't show on the cake when it is removed from the pan.
Step 4: Bake
Pour the batter evenly in the bundt pan. Use a spatula to even out the batter on top. Bake for about 35 min. Test with a toothpick to see if the cake is cooked through. The toothpick should be clean when it comes out of the cake when the cake is ready.
Wait 10 minutes before removing the cake from the pan. If the cake sticks at all, run a knife around the edges to loosen it.
Step 5: Decorate
Sprinkle the top of the cake with powdered sugar and garnish with strawberries. Enjoy!
