promise you'll make this...and then thank me for it.

Ok, so Janssen needed an idea for a good chocolate dessert. I have the very best idea for her, but it felt way too tacky to copy and paste the whole recipe into a comment on her blog....therefore I had to blog about it here and add the recipe. Its criminal that I don't have a picture, but alas, I don't. I had it the first time at Janaya's birthday dinner (go to that link, laugh a bunch, and then harass her into blogging!!!!) but I've made it once myself, received very appreciated praise for it, and have craved it daily since! Just trust me.

1 pkg devils food cake mix
1-3.9oz pkg instant chocolate pudding
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/2 cup hot water
2 cups sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven 350. Grease and flour a bundt pan. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, oil, eggs, water, sour cream and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into the pan. Bake for 1 hour.( Make sure to check it, it make take less or more time depending on your oven.) Allow to cool slightly before removing it from the pan. Then allow it to cool completely.

You can dust it with powdered sugar or use the ganache which is what we use. 2 parts chocolate to 1 part cream. Heat the cream, remove from stove and stir in chocolate to melt, cool until it is the right consistancy to pour over the cake.

Mmmmm....so glad that recipe is out in the open. The only thing that makes it better is when someone else makes it for you so next time you make it invite me over! And yeah Janaya get to blogging!
