I made this Darn Good Chocolate Cake for Matt's birthday last week and it was amazing!!!! The Cake Doctor uses a bunt pan but I made it in 2, 8 inch layered cake pans. I used store bought vanilla frosting and it was delicious together.
1 package plain devil's food or dark chocolate fudge cake mix
1 package (3.9 oz) chocolate instant pudding mix
4 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, warm water, and oil in a large mixing bowl. Blend on low speed for 1 minute. Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Continue beating on medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes. The batter should look thick.
Pour the batter into prepared pan. Smoothing it out with a rubber spatula. Place the pan in the oven.
Bake for 45-50 minutes.
Frost cake with your favorite icing after completely cooled!
