Chocolate Bundt Cake

This cake is one of the easiest I've ever made. I actually discovered the recipe earlier last month but didn't have time to make it. But when my friend Monica's father died this week, I was thinking of ways to help her out, when I thought of making a meal and a dessert for her and her family. I made her a large pan of pasta along with a salad, Italian bread and this cake. To make it a little easier on me, I made double of the meal so I could save time and feed my family as well. Monica said her family loved the meal but the cake was the big hit. Our family had to agree. We really liked our cake too!

Chocolate Bundt Cake

1 (18 oz) box fudge cake mix (no pudding version, moist is fine)
1 (3.5 oz) instant chocolate pudding
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil (you can substitute applesauce for lower fat/calories)
1/2 cup water
1 cup sour cream (I used low fat)
1 (9 oz) package semi sweet chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients, except chocolate chips, very well. When well blended, add chips and blend. Pour mix into well greased/sprayed bundt pan. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Cool in pan on wire rack for 30 minutes. Turn out cake on serving platter. When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with chocolate syrup or ice cream, if desired.
