Donelle's Double Chocolate Bundt Cake

This cake looks beautiful and tastes phenomenal! I usually don't get too excited about chocolate cake, but this is an exception. OH MAN!

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 small pkg. instant chocolate pudding
4 eggs
3/4 c. oil
3/4 c. water
1 (8oz.) container sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 bag chocolate chips
nuts can be added if desired

Mix the first five ingredients. Add the sour cream and vanilla. Mix again. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into a greased bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes. Pour warm frosting over the top allowing it to drip down the sides of the cake. Sprinkle top of cake with powdered sugar or with chopped nuts.

Frosting for bundt cake:

3 T. cocoa
6 T. milk
1 stick margarine
2 c. powdered sugar

Bring cocoa, milk & margarine to a boil, then remove from heat. Whisk in 2 c. powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Immediately pour over cake. (You may want to sift the powdered sugar to keep the frosting from getting lumpy). Use the same sifter to dust the top of the cake with powdered sugar after frosting. I use a small wire strainer for this.
