Nearly every weekend we would rent a cheesy horror flick like "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes", flop on comfy couches, and eat tons of yummy food.
To this day, our friends know that if we hang out at my parents' house, we're going to get fed.
One friend in particular loved a cake that my mom would make. He would request it and for good reason; it's awesome! He liked it so much that we started calling it Eddie's Cake.
This is one of my all-time favorite cakes too - both to make and to eat.
It is of the highly popular "dump" variety of foods - you dump in all the ingredients, give it a whirl, and cook it. Done.
I have never had this turn out badly. There's a first time for everything obviously but so far, so good.
Without further ado here is the recipe:
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake a.k.a. Eddie's Cake
1 box Yellow Cake Mix
1 (12oz.) pkg. Chocolate Chips
1 (8oz.) Sour Cream
3/4c. Vegetable Oil
1 (3.9 oz.) pkg. Chocolate Fudge Instant Pudding.
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients and cook in Bundt pan for 1 hour. Cool 20 minutes.
That's it! Super easy. The hard part is waiting for it to cool. :)
Okay, that's where my Momma would stop because she is good at following directions. Me, not so much so I add a little something extra y'now, 'cause that's how I roll.
To the ingredients to be dumped in with everything else, you can put in any or all of these:
1 tsp. vanilla
1 sachet (about 1 tsp.) of instant coffee
1 tsp. cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. orange extract
Replace 1/2 chocolate chips with white or cinnamon or caramel or peanut butter chips
