I am in such a food coma right now. I ate so much last week while visiting my parents, I don’t really need to eat at all for a few more days, at least.
Yesterday I shared my Dad’s bread pudding that we ate, and today I’m sharing another recipe from last week.
I knew my dad had requested that I make carrot cake for Easter, but I was going through a baking withdrawal. I am used to cooking something up nearly every day of the week. As much as I tried to relax and enjoy the time off, my taste buds were begging for some chocolate.
Chocolate Cake to be exact.
So, after searching my parents cupboards one afternoon, I realized they had all the ingredients to make a moist chocolate pudding cake.
SO SO SO easy, and only a few ingredients. There are so many varieties you can make as well.
This is a very dense cake because of the pudding, but quite a lovely treat!
How to make Chocolate Pudding Cake
First, in a large mixing bowl, combine chocolate pudding mix with milk. Whisk until smooth.
Add in chocolate cake mix and beat until well blended. Fold in chocolate chips.
Pour cake batter into a greased 13×9 baking dish, and bake according to cake mix package directions.
Remove from oven and cool completely.
Top with Cool Whip (or homemade whipped cream) and sprinkles, refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Cake will be moist and dense…perfect!!
