i smell cake

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,  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!! 
you'll need:
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
4 eggs
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!!! 


  1. That is absolutely beautiful and I can only imagine how wonderful it tastes!

  2. Mmm, I love stuff like that with coffee.
