Grandma's Chocolate Bundt Cake

I am all for starting from scratch and getting down to the nitty-gritty when it comes to baking. But this recipe uses not one, but two(!) pre-packaged boxed mixes, and I am not at all ashamed. This is the best, most moist chocolate cake you will ever have, so honestly, I don't see why you would mess with a good thing. This is a family classic that my grandmother gave me the recipe to a long time ago. We never celebrated a holiday that didn't involve this chocolate cake. And today, it is to celebrate my grandma's birthday. Happy birthday Grandma!

Recipe yields 1 bundt cake

1 box chocolate fudge cake mix
1 package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
4 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup luke warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips (flavor is your choice, i used a mix of semi-sweet and milk)
Confectioner's sugar, for decoration

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk eggs. 

Stir in the sour cream, oil, water and vanilla. Mix well.

Add all the chocolate pudding mix and a little bit of cake mix at a time to the wet ingredients. Stir until all mix has been added and the wet and dry ingredients are combined.

Add in your chocolate chips and stir to evenly distribute around the batter.

Pour into a greased bundt pan and bake for 1 hour. While the cake is in the oven, you can quickly clean the ONE bowl used and then sit back and relax. It will realize how nice it is to make a cake from start to finish and only dirty one bowl!

Remove from oven and let cool. Flip pan over and top cake with confectioner's sugar.

Slice and serve with cold milk. Enjoy!
