Darn Good Chocolate Cake

 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!
