Today I was in the mood to bake something, but didn't want to go out in the rain to run to the store for anything. I have a good baking stash in the pantry, but decided on this Double Chocolate Brownie Cake that calls for very few ingredients. It's a simple doctored cake mix and turns out really dense, moist, and chocolately. Since the cake itself is fairly rich, I just dusted powdered sugar on top instead of making a glaze or frosting of some kind. Yum!
1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan. Have all ingredients at room temperature.
In a large bowl, stir together cake mix and pudding mix. Make a well in the center and pour in eggs, sour cream, oil and water. Beat on low speed until blended. Scrape bowl, and beat 4 minutes on medium speed. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
