"True Love" Chocolate Chip Cake

I was passed this recipe by my cousin Carrie during my pregnancy with my daughter when all I craved was stuff with chocolate in it. I must warn you, it's highly addictive!  One reason is that it's so delicious and gooey but another reason is that it only takes about 3-5 minutes to assemble from start to finish.  This is really a "semi-homemade" cake but it tastes like it's made from scratch. The secret ingredient is Jello Instant Pudding which gives the cake the moist texture and yummy taste.  This cake is the sole reason I gained 60 lbs during my pregnancy so buyer beware!

1 package of any store bought BUTTER yellow cake mix
4 eggs
8 oz sour cream
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup Canola Oil
4 oz package of JELLO Instant Vanilla Pudding
1 small package of semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Dump cake mix into a bowl.

3.  Add 4 eggs, oil, and water into bowl

4.  Add Jello Instant Pudding into bowl

5.  Add in Sour Cream and using a hand mixer, blend until smooth

6.  Put Chocolate chips in a separate bowl and coat with 1 tablespoon of flour.  This is a great trick I recently learned that prevents your chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom.

7.  Fold chocolate chips into the cake batter

8.  Spray or grease 2 loaf pans, 1 big bundt pan, or really any kind of pan you like using.  Just watch cooking times based on what you choose.

9.  Fill the pans up 1/2 way because the cake will rise a lot.  Pop them in the oven for 50 minutes at 350 degrees

10.  Take out of oven, let cool, slice and enjoy!   The second cake can be frozen and used for a future time.


  1. Interesting and informative. But will you write about this one more? I can't quite remember what he was selling.

  2. I would like to show thanks to you just for rescuing me from such a situation. After exploring throughout the online world and obtaining solutions which are not powerful, I was thinking my life was gone. Being alive without the solutions to the issues you have sorted out all through your good post is a critical case, as well as the kind which might have badly damaged my career if I had not noticed your web page. That competence and kindness in playing with the whole thing was useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a solution like this. I can at this moment relish my future. Thank you so much for this skilled and results-oriented guide. I won't think twice to refer the blog to anybody who needs care about this problem.

  3. I and my buddies were actually reading the best procedures from the blog then quickly I got a terrible feeling I had not thanked the blog owner for those secrets. My young boys came so thrilled to study them and have now definitely been using them. Many thanks for turning out to be indeed helpful and for picking this form of good themes most people are really desirous to discover. Our own sincere apologies for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.
