This recipe is from my home church’s cook book and is from my neighbor, Cherie, from where I grow up. It’s one of my favorite cakes to make; it is very simple to make and very delicious!
1 package yellow cake mix
1 package vanilla instant pudding
3/4 c. water
2 T. sour cream
1/2 c. oil
1 (12 oz) package chocolate chips
Blend first 6 ingredients together for 5 minutes on medium speed. Mix in the chocolate chips (coat with flour to help avoid the chips all sinking to the bottom of the cake). Pour batter into greased and floured tube or bundt pan. Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes (be sure to test the cake for doneness, the recipe says 50 minutes but it actually take about 1 hour 15 minutes in my oven). Be sure to really prepare the pan, I sometimes have problems with the cake all coming out in one piece (as the pictures will prove!).
