A-O chocolate cake
1 Devils Food Cake (chocolate) mix
10oz Chocolate Chips
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 Instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil
Mix together, pour into greased bundt pan. Bake @350 for 1 hour
Top with whip cream and strawberries

This is my all time dessert. Ever. For as long as I can remember this was always my choice for my Birthday dessert.

I'm not sure where my Nana found this recipe, but it quickly became the family fave. After she passed away, my Aunts would take turns making the cake for different family birthdays (and though they make the cake very yummy, it's never quite the same as having Nana make it)

But since she passed away (7 years ago last January), our family get-togethers, have gotten fewer and far between. We're all older, my younger cousins all have jobs etc now, so timing is never quite right. This is sad for many reasons.

One of them being less A-O chocolate cake.

But because Nick loves this chocolate cake so much loves me more than anything, he got the recipe from my Aunt Wendy. And he makes it for me once in a while. I don't bake, because, well I burn toast, and can't boil water to save my life.

So, lets get to the cake!

First off, you need a box of Devils Food cake and one package of instant pudding.

You also need eggs, sour cream, chocolate chips, oil and water. But I didn't take pics of those.




Poor into a greased bundt pan

Let your 17 month old daughter clean the spatula

Bake at 350 for an hour, and then voila!


Let cool, then slice...


Top with strawberries and whip cream. But if you don't let it cool, it melts like you see here (which isn't pretty but yummy anyways).


Nick was in a hurry to eat it.
