The Most Incredible Chocolate Cake Recipe

Written by Lyndi. Posted in Recipes

For Max's 6th birthday, he requested a chocolate cake with white frosting.  I wasn't in the mood to make a cheesy "kid" cake, so I whipped up this bad boy and it was seriously the yummiest chocolate cake that I have ever had...and it was pretty easy too. cake1cake3Here is the birthday boy blowing out his candles...and don't mind Millie Kate in the background flirting with the boy that she says she is going to marry!cake2

Max with his buddies...I just love these boys! Oh and yes, Max is the youngest of this bunch, but a head taller than all of them.  

I doubled this recipe for the picture above...this recipe will normally make a 2 layer cake. 

Incredible Chocolate Cake

1 package devils food cake mix

1 3.4 ounce package of instant vanilla pudding mix

1 cup sour cream

1 cup butter

4 eggs

1/2 cup warm water

2 cups milk chocolate chips

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

2 sticks butter (softened)

4 cups confectioners sugar

1/2 cup  heavy whipping cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, butter, beaten eggs and water.  Stir in the chocolate chips and pour batter into a well greased 8 or 9 inch round pans. 

Bake for approximately 35-45 minutes, or until top is springy to the touch and s wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean.  

Frosting: Whip all ingredients until smooth...when cakes are cooled, put frosting on top of each layer and then frost the outside of the cake.  I chopped up chocolate chips and put that in the center and along the bottom.  EASY and so delicious!! ENJOY!
