Chocolate Bundt Cake

A few years ago I asked for a bundt pan for Christmas.  I think I've only used it once up until now so I began searching for a chocolate bundt cake recipe.  I found this one on Pinterest and it comes from The Sisters Cafe blog!  This cake is sooo moist and delicious!  This recipe is definitely a keeper.  The recipe called for semi-sweet chocolate chips but I didn't have enough so I used a mixture of semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips.  The original frosting recipe called for evaporated milk but I used regular milk and it turned out great!  This frosting reminds me of the frosting I use on my Texas cake. 

 You will need a devil's food cake mix, 1 pkg. instant chocolate pudding mix, 4 large eggs (one of my eegs is hiding in the picture), 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup warm water, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet).

 In a large bowl, mix all ingredients except chocolate chips with an electric mixer for 1 minute.  Scrape down sides and beat for additional 2-3 minutes.  Fold in chocolate chips and pour batter into prepared bundt pan. 
 
 Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. 

 Cool for about 20 minutes and then invert onto serving platter!!

 Sorry I didn't get pics of making the frosting!  It's really very easy.  Melt butter in saucepan over low heat.  Whisk in cocoa and milk.  Bring mixture just to a boil, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and add in powdered sugar.  Blend with an electric mixer until thickened and smooth.  Pour frosting over cake!  NOTE:  This make a lot of frosting and I did not use it all.

I really need to use my bundt pan more often!  Such a beautiful presentation!!!  :)
