As a cake decorator, I've tried a lot of different "doctored cake mix" recipes. This is one of the best I've tried. I love how it only takes 1 cup of sour cream (others take 2 cups). Don't be afraid to add the full amount of oil---it's cake! I prefer using mini chocolate chips, and they add a lot to the recipe. The little ones don't "sink" to the bottom of the cake pan AND are small enough to melt completely, leaving a small bit of pure chocolate in each bite. I will be using this recipe from now on.

Cut the calories and this cake still tastes awesome. I used Sugar free pudding mix, fat free sour cream, unsweetened applesauce instead of oil, and egg whites... you'd never know it was ~200 less calories/slice. It was very moist and chocolaty which is hard to find when you use the "healthier" options.

Very, very moist, rich cake. Followed recipe exactly. This is going to become a standard at our house. Perfect with a dusting of powdered sugar and a cold glass of milk. I can definitely see where this one won the award! Update 8/20/06 - have made this recipe many, many times now for parties and get-togethers. It ALWAYS receives rave reviews. I have experimented with different flavors of cake mixes/pudding/chips and had wonderful results. Fudge cake/choc pudding/choc mint chips. Carmel cake/butterscotch pudding/butterscotch chips. Cherry cake mix/vanilla pudding/cherry chips. Fudge cake/choc pudding/peanut butter chips (this one was awesome!). This is my standard cake now I make for everything. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
