The Best Chocolate Cake Ever

I recently stumbled on a blog called Kevin & Amanda. I don't think there is a recipe on there that I don't want to try.

I'm also a huge sweets fan, so when I saw this cake recipe, I wanted to make it immediately. Lucky for me, my daughter's third birthday was coming up, so I knew it was going to be her birthday cake :)

What you need:
  • 1 box devil's food cake mix
  • 1 pkg. Jell-O instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups mini semisweet chocolate chips
(Unfortunately no pictures here either. I was multitasking making my birthday girl a birthday breakfast at the same time I was doing her cake)
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Mix everything together except chocolate chips. Then add the chocolate chips in. [Batter will be thick]
  2. Pour into prepared pan(s). Bake according to devil's food cake directions for your size pan(s). Then check in 5 minute increments with a toothpick until done. Amanda says that it took her around 45 minutes for 2 9-inch round cake pans.
  3. Cool before frosting.
 I also used Marshmallow Fondant and Quick Vanilla Buttercream Frosting with this recipe :)
And...this really is the best chocolate cake ever. Those chocolate chips add an extra element of epic deliciousness into this cake. I couldn't get enough!
