Chocolate Snack Cake

This is one of our family's favorite cake recipes, and it is so easy!  It's one of the most moist chocolate cakes ever.

Here's the ingredients you'll need:

Chocolate Snack Cake

1 yellow or chocolate cake mix (I prefer to use a chocolate mix - it makes the cake more chocolate-y, and Duncan Hines is the most moist cake mix out there)
1 3.4 oz box chocolate pudding mix
1 c. sour cream
3/4 c. oil
3/4 c. water
3 eggs
1 c. chocolate chips

Blend together the cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, oil, water and eggs in a large bowl.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Pour the batter into a well-greased and floured bundt pan.  Bake in a pre-heated 350F degree oven for 45 - 50 min. or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.  Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan.  Sprinkle the top with powdered sugar and enjoy!

We've made several variations on this cake - a lemon cake with a lemon cake and pudding mix, a pistachio cake with a yellow cake mix and pistachio pudding mix, and the list could go on. 

I've also made this cake as a layer cake, and it is the BEST chocolate layer cake ever!  I doubled the recipe to get this three-layer cake.
