Happy Birthday Dad!

Ok, it's **technically** next Tuesday, but in honor of my wonderful Dad's 71st birthday, I thought I'd post a recipe for one of his ALL-TIME favorites, Chocolate cake. This one is written for a bundt pan, which is great because I have some really cool ones....

Super Fudgy Chocolate Cake

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 5 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, invert and remove from pan. You can top with a dusting of powdered sugar if desired.
