Ultimate Chocolate Cake

A few weeks ago my soon to be sister-in-law and I got together for some "girl time." She brought this awesome chocolate cake and some chocolate covered strawberries. Let me tell you, this stuff is AWESOME. Our local grocery chain, Wegmans, held a contest a while back to find the ultimate chocolate cake recipe. They came up with a moist, rich chocolate cake with a creamy frosting, that is the ultimate fix for when you really want some decadent chocolate. I'm not usually much for chocolate flavored things (I prefer just straight chocolate), but this one really takes the cake. (Takes the cake, get it?) Unfortunately, they don't share their super secret recipe, so I did some hunting of my own, and found you this Too Much Chocolate Cake (is there any such thing?) recipe that gets rave reviews on allrecipes.com and won first prize at the creator's county fair. So, because I am in a sharing mood, you can get in on the fun!

Too Much Chocolate Cake


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
  • 1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, oil, beaten eggs and water. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour batter into a well greased 12 cup bundt pan.
  3. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until top is springy to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool cake thoroughly in pan at least an hour and a half before inverting onto a plate If desired, dust the cake with powdered sugar.
Original recipe here. Also, if you'd rather make your frosting from scratch, you can use this recipe. :-) You're welcome!
