What's up Wednesday--triple chocolate bundt cake

I very freely and wholeheartedly admit I love desserts.  Always have.  Always will.  Life it too short not to have them every once in a while.  I will also admit that cake is not one of the first things that comes to mind when I try to decide what to make for dessert.  Cookies and bar cookies/brownies are probably my first love, but every once in a while I need to make something different.  When I do make a cake, this triple chocolate bundt cake is the one I usually choose--easy, moist, chocolate--need I say more?  It is even better because the base is just a chocolate cake mix---use German chocolate, Devil's food, milk chocolate, whatever chocolate cake mix you have on hand.  I have used them all, and they are all good.  I sprinkled this one with powdered sugar just to make it prettier because we had company, but plain is fine.  I have never put a glaze or frosting on this.  It doesn't need it.  
Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake

1 chocolate cake mix--any kind, milk, dark, Devil's food, German, whatever you have
1 small package instant chocolate pudding mix--again any kind, dark, milk, etc
4 large eggs
1 cup sour cream--I have used low fat, but fat free doesn't seem to work as well
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Mix everything together except chocolate chips in a mixing bowl.  Beat for 3 minutes--it will be thick.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Spread in a well greased Bundt pan and bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from middle.  Allow to cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing and then cool completely.  Enjoy!  A scoop of vanilla ice cream with this is just heaven!

  1. Looks yummy. I wanted to tell you that I made those calico beans and yum, loved them. My family tolerated them. I think their taste buds must be totally off. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes, and for the suggestion to look up Mel's Kitchen Cafe. I LOVE her. Between the two of you, I can't go wrong!
