A day without chocolate is a day without sunshine

{Posted on September 25, 2011}

It’s a dark, rainy day here today so it looks like a moist, dense, delicious chocolate cake is in order to make my own sunshine. Of course being the chocoholic I’ve confessed to be, ANY day is a good day for chocolate – especially this cake! If you are looking for the chocolate cake to beat all cakes, well you’ve come to the right place my friends. Given to me by my friend Annemarie, she claimed it was truly “death by chocolate”…start writing my obit, cuz this is MY way to go!

Death By Chocolate Cake

1 dark chocolate cake mix

1 – 3 oz. package of dark chocolate instant pudding

1 cup of water

1/2 cup of oil

4 eggs

8 oz. sour cream

8 oz. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cake mix and pudding with 1 cup of water. Add the oil and eggs and beat on medium speed until well blended. Fold in sour cream and chocolate chips. Pour into a greased bundt pan and bake for 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes, then invert onto a cake plate. Cool completely and frost.

Frosting:

1 stick of butter

4 squares of unsweetened chocolate

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1 lb box of confectioners sugar

2-3 Tablespoons of milk

Pour into a mixing bowl and mix in vanilla and salt. Mix on low and add sugar slowly until all added.
