last night i made dinner and brought it over to my parents' house. my dad is a hunter, and he got his first deer last week(his first one in a looong time! lol) *please, no hunting haters! anyhoo, i'm a big stew lover, so i made it with venison! so yummy! besides the stew, we had to have dessert, right? right! i have been eyeballing a recipe from my favorite site, allrecipes.com. its the "too much chocolate cake", however, i was missing the chocolate pudding. dang, i really wanted chocolate too! ok, time to improvise. i had strawberry cake mix and white chocolate instant pudding. seriously, it is a winning combination. while i didn't get the white chocolate flavor per say, the cake was so moist and delicious...and the smell, holy strawberries, did this smell good!!
1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
*keep in mind, you can use any flavor combination you like!!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, oil, beaten eggs and water. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour batter into a well greased 12 cup bundt pan.
Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until top is springy to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool cake thoroughly in pan at least an hour and a half before inverting onto a plate If desired, dust the cake with powdered sugar.
i know that i've been on a healthy kick, but really, when you need a treat, this is worth it! i did opt to use light sour cream and sugar free pudding--because that's what i had!! i can't wait to try more flavors!!!
