The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake…

The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake…Ever. I will have to be honest, I was a little skeptical at first. That is a pretty tall order…but after taste testing (and having some of the best dessert critics, my family, around taste test)  I think I might have to agree.  The best part is, it is so easy and it is a cake mix with a few additions! I found the recipe while on Whipper Dish while gawking the other day so I tried this cake out for my mom’s birthday.

This recipe is that fabulous, I feel like this recipe can hold its own for a week…because we are off to the beach! I hope you have a great weekend, a great week and enjoy The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake…Ever!

The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake…Ever

1 Chocolate Cake Mix (any kind, I used Devil’s Food)

1 C Mini Chocolate Chips

1 C Sour Cream (I actually used 3/4 cup mayo)

1 Pkg. of Chocolate Pudding (small box 3.5 oz.)

Prepare cake as directed on box and add sour cream,  pudding and chocolate chips.  Pour into 2 9-inch round pans.  Bake as directed on box (you might need to add a minute or 2 to the baking time because of the added sour cream and pudding).  Place on wire rack to cool.

Equally Impressive Chocolate Frosting

I would venture to say this might be the most impressive part about the cake! For this cake I doubled the recipe. 

2 C butter at room temperature

6 oz. Ghirardelli 100% cocoa chocolate bar (I used 60% and it was AMAZING)

8 C Powered Sugar

Milk

Chop the chocolate, then place in double broiler until melted. Cream together butter, chocolate, and 4 cups of powered sugar, add milk as needed for desired consistency.  Combine until creamy, continue to add powered sugar and milk until it is the consistency and taste that you want.  Place one layer of cake on cake stand and frost the top, then add the second layer and frost the rest of the cake.

 

Garnish with chocolate curls.
