Tasty Tuesday: Too Much Chocolate Cake

My oh my! This cake is killer. My friend Christine brought this to my house once upon a time, and she very kindly brought it again last week as my birthday gift to my birthday/U.F.O. gathering. It is so yummy! A little piece goes a long way! I have not personally made this, but I have consumed more than my fair share. :)
Christine notes that she has used less oil and also substituted half applesauce (she will correct me in comments if I have this wrong, right C?) and it has been just as tasty. She has also used other chocolate cake flavors and other chips such as peanut butter and butterscotch and again, just as tasty.

Too Much Chocolate Cake -By: Denise

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.

* Update: I just found this recipe posted on AllRecipes.com. Here is the link. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/too-much-chocolate-cake/


  1. Talk about chocolate overload - makes my mouth water - lol!!

  2. You got it right! Except I personally go with the MILK chocolate chips.

    And an ice cold glass of milk on the side.

  3. This sounds great for an Easter dessert. Amy, do you post photos of your items anywhere?

    1. This cake is delicious!

      I try to put photos on the posts themselves, but sometimes, especially with the older recipe posts, I didn't take photos for one reason or another. I am actually in the process of fixing that though. When I make something again, that I know I have posted the recipe for I will take photos and go back and add them.
      This cake was gone long before I had a chance to take any photos.
      I made the cake last night and added a photo this morning.
      I have a Flickr account but I usually forget to put pictures there.
      I hope that helps!
