Yes please!!! And what recipe do you ask is our favorite chocolate cake recipe? It is the “Our Version of Nothing Bundt Chocolate Chip Cake” from the cookbook Favorite Family Recipes. It is simply delicious, and simply……simple!!
We first added the cake mix, chocolate pudding, sour cream, eggs, water and oil and beat till well combined. My Little Chef B is so proud of himself that he is now able to crack and add the eggs with no help (and no shells)!
We stirred in the chocolate chips, because yes we need more chocolate into this awesome cake. We did find that the mini chocolate chips are the only way to go with this recipe. We poured the cake mixture into a greased Bundt cake pan and baked it for 45 minutes. After cooking the cake let it cool for 20 minutes, then remove from the pan. We also learned this great trick from the Favorite Family Recipes….put the cake on a serving plate and wrap well in plastic wrap, and let it sit for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator before frosting and serving.
In the meantime, we made up the frosting. We grabbed our mixing bowl and in went the cream cheese and butter till smooth. We mixed in the vanilla and then gradually stirred in the powdered sugar until it is nice and thick. Chef E’s favorite part to the frosting is obviously the cleanup!!
We then frosted the cake by simply using a piping bag, no fancy tip, just snipped off the end. And a quick tip to fill your piping bag is to grab a tall cup and sit the empty bag inside the cup and fold the edge of the bag over the rim of the cup and fill with your frosting!! Much easier for Little Chef hands!!
And there you have it…..A delicious chocolate bundt cake that is sure to be a crowd pleaser!!! And don’t forget, we are giving away one of these awesome Favorite Family Cookbooks, just go here to enter! The last day is tomorrow!!!!
