Kid Friendly Recipe Sunday - Super Rich Awesome Chocolate Cake

Since I have been stuck inside a lot lately I have had a major sweet tooth. So, this week’s Sunday recipe is a really good chocolate cake…

This cake will make you want to slap your momma. Okay, please don’t really slap your momma.
Anyways, here it is.
You will need:

1 Box of Devil’s food Cake Mix (I use Duncan Hines, because it is the best)
1 1/4 Cup of Sour Cream
1 1/8 cup of Vegetable Oil
1 of the smaller packs of JELLO instant Chocolate pudding mix
4 Eggs
½ Cup milk
2tsp Vanilla
2 cups (mini) Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat the oven to 350
In a large bowl mix everything (with a mixer) but the chocolate chips.

Batter will be thick.
Stir in the Chocolate Chips.

Pour into pan of your choice. I used two round 9inch pans.

Bake for about 10-15 minutes longer than what the directions on the cake mix box states.
I used a white vanilla icing for mine but you can use whatever. This cake is a very rich chocolate and great for any chocolate lover. I will also include a homemade butter cream frosting recipe I have used before and works great with this cake. I didn’t make the icing this time. I was lame and bought the icing in can. Sorry to let you down.

Butter Cream Frosting

1 cup shortening (Crisco)
4 cups powdered sugar
¼ tsp salt
1tsp vanilla
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream (usually found near the milk or coffee creamer)
In a bowl beat shortening until fluffy. Add Sugar and continue mixing until blended. Add salt, vanilla, and whipping cream. Blend on low until moist then beat on high until frosting in the consistency you want.
