It has been a very busy couple of months. At my job, we lost half of our staff due to employees leaving. A week after that I eloped and got married! We had a fabulous time with visiting family and friends for both our wedding and our reception. They visited us for a little over a week so I am tired and ready for something quick and simple right about now. This Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake fits the bill.
This cake is super simple to make. It only requires a cake mix, instant pudding, sour cream and chocolate chips. Everything is put in the same bowl and mixed together then poured into a pan. As you can see it is super moist and super chocolaty!
This cake recipe has been around for a long time in my family. I remember my step sister being about 11 or 12 years old and asking for my mom to make it for her for her birthday. Now my kids ask for it for their birthday sometimes. It is a tradition in our family that the birthday boy or girl gets to request a certain dessert be made for their birthday. It is almost always homemade and almost always chocolate.
I have made this dessert a lot for work functions as well. When I made the cake for this post I ended up having some leftover and I took it to work. The next morning the whole thing was gone. I had thought someone just threw it away. However, I found out the next day that the night shift security guard had come into our department, had one bite and then took the rest of the cake for himself. I am just glad someone actually enjoyed it!
