Today’s dessert from my chief recipe requester-taste tester, Rob, is a chocolate cake with chocolate chips and chocolate frosting. You can use any flavour chocolate cake mix (I used devil’s food today). Remember to preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.
- 1 chocolate cake mix
- 3.4 oz instant chocolate pudding mix
- 2 cups Greek yogurt (or sour cream, fat free or lowfat is fine)
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp chocolate extract (or vanilla)
- 2 cups chocolate chips
Directions – Preheat oven to 350 for 20 minutes. Spray a bunch pan with baking spray. Combine cake mix and pudding mix. Blend in yogurt, extract, eggs, oil and water. Fold in chips. Mixture will be thick. Spread evenly in pan. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few crumbs. Cool 15 minutes in pan. Invert onto cake plate. Cool completely.
- Frosting ingredients

- 1/4 cup baking cocoa

- 1/4 cup heavy cream
Directions – blend cocoa, vanilla and butter. Mix in powdered sugar, then heavy cream. You can add more powdered sugar or heavy cream to get the consistency you want. Frost cake. Store in covered container.
I appreciate you stopping by. If you make this cake, let me know how it turns out. And remember – be kind. We are all going through a lot, some more than others.
