Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

If you’re looking for something super easy to make that is also a major crowd pleaser, then look no further than this!  My mom has been making Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake or “Chocolate Chip Butt Cake” as our family lovingly calls it (ya know, because it’ll go straight to your butt) for as long as I can remember.  It has always been one of our favorite desserts and my mom has made it for countless dinners, parties, holidays, and other get-togethers.  I’ve never met anyone who didn’t love it!

I never actually knew where the recipe came from, but a couple of weeks ago one of my regular blog readers who also happens to be the wife of one of my Daddy’s old coworkers (Hi, Kathy!) saw me mention the cake on the blog, and she thought that it might be her mother’s recipe.  She messaged my Momma and asked her, and sure enough, my Momma had gotten the recipe from her mom back when she used to bring it to our church!  It’s such a small world and it really is neat to know where the recipe came from!

Without further ado, one of the tastiest and easiest treats that you will ever eat!

Buy It

1 box yellow cake mix
4 eggs
1 small box vanilla instant pudding
1 8 oz. sour cream (I use the light version)
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I use Smart Balance)
1 12 oz. bag mini chocolate chips
Powdered Sugar (optional if you want to be fancy)

Use It

Bundt cake pan (this one is a high-end option & this one is a little cheaper)

Make It

1.      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.      Combine cake mix, eggs, pudding, sour cream, and vegetable oil in large bowl with mixer for two minutes. 
3.      Stir in chocolate chips.
4.      Grease or spray a bundt cake pan.
5.      Pour mixture into bundt cake pan.
6.      Bake for 45 – 60 minutes (45 is usually perfect in my oven).
7.      If you want to be fancy, give it a good sprinkling of powdered sugar on the top… makes it look pretty and gives the edges a burst of sweetness!

It’s basically like a big ol’ chocolate chip cookie.  But in cake form.

And I told you it was easy!!

And just so you know, the leftovers make for an excellent breakfast.  Grab a cup of coffee or a big, cold glass of milk, and eat up!  And don’t forget to heat it up!  Because when it’s warm, it’s even better. 

You’re welcome.

And now it's time for the Tuesday Talk Link Up!
