Chocolate Chip Cake

This cake recipe is a twist on my famous Death by Chocolate. I wanted to make a new cake that would become another favorite for my family, and I succeed. Ariel says that this is now her favorite cake, and I believe what she say’s because after she ate one piece she had to have another and she plans on having another later. So maybe this cake should come with a warning sign that says, Warning this cake may causes spontaneous consumption!

Chocolate Chip Cake
1 cup sour cream
½ cup water
½ cup oil
1 box yellow cake mix
1 package vanilla instant pudding mix
12 oz. bag semisweet mini chocolate chips, divided

Divide a 12 oz. bag of mini chocolate chips three ways, ¾ cup for the glaze recipe, ¼ cup for sprinkling over glaze and the remainder of the bag is to be mixed into the cake batter about 1 ½ cups. Set aside.

Beat eggs, sour cream, water, and oil together in a large bowl until thoroughly mixed. Add cake mix and pudding mix. Beat until smooth. Stir, in the remaining chocolate chips, about 1 ½ cups. Pour into Bundt or tube pan bake at 350⁰ for 1 hour. When cool top with glaze; recipe follows, and then sprinkle the ¼ cup of mini chocolate chips over the top of glaze.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze
