This is a doctored up cake mix recipe and it’s one of my favorites!   Lately, I’ve been skipping the German chocolate if I don’t have it on hand and it turns out just as good.  I’ve added a few tablespoons of flour to the cake mix due to the new smaller sizes (15.25oz) of most cake mixes on the market.

yellow cake mix, plus 3 T flour
8 oz chocolate chips
4 oz German chocolate, grated
1 pkg. (3.9 oz) vanilla instant pudding
8 oz sour cream
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cup water

Grease and flour bundt pan or use a 9×13 pan. Mix together  all ingredients except chocolate.  Fold in chocolate.  Bake  at 350 degrees for 50 – 60 minutes.  Keep checking using the tooth pick test to make sure you don’t overcook. Let cool completely.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar or drizzle with chocolate ganache.


Chocolate Ganache

2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup cream or half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a saucepan, add the chocolate, cream and butter and place it on a low heat. Stir until the chocolate has melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the extract.    Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes to thicken.  Give it a stir and drizzle it over the cake. Keep cake in a airtight container.
