Chocolate Cake is for Lovers!

chocolate-valentine.jpgHere’s my absolute favorite chocolate cake recipe in the whole world.  It’s rich, chocolatey, and easy to make.   And since Valentine’s Day is known for giving your lover chocolate as a sign of your affection, you still have time to make this!

Chocolate Fudge Cake

1 box chocolate fudge cake mix

1 box instant chocolate fudge pudding

1/2 cup sour cream

4 eggs

1/2 cup oil

3/4 cup water

1 tsp. vanilla

8 oz. mini-chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare either 13 x 9 pan or two 9 inch rounds with shortening, dusted with flour.

Now, it’s preferable to cool the cake before frosting.  But if you’re really anxious to show your love, you can frost the cake with a can of chocolate fudge frosting while it’s still warm, then cut a large piece and serve it dripping. 

No telling what your lover will do to show his appreciation, eh?

Happy Valentine’s Day to all our Petticoats & Pistols friends.

We love you!

  1. I don’t know, Pam, there might not be quite enough chocolate in there.
    My gosh it sound fantastic. I need CHOCOLATE.
    Yes, sadly, a Hershey bar may had to do, if I can even find out of those!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Pam- looks heavenly! I’m not eating any chocolate today though. We went “cake tasting” yesterday at a pastry shop for Nikki’s wedding and boy oh boy, I had my fill of delicious cakes!!

  3. This sounds yummy, and it’s definitely on my To Bake List. I’ve already made my hubby his cake — his favorite YELLOW :::bluck::: but it is redeemed by chocolate frosting, so I made my chocolate fudge frosting. Of course it’s in the shape of a heart. Awwww.

    Wish I could have been there for the cake testing, Char!

  4. Sinful, that’s what this is! Oooooh, I can taste the warm chocolate on my tongue now. This would make some woman (or man) very, very happy and in the mood for love. Glad you shared it with us.

    I second the fact that we love our P&P fans. Y’all are the best there is and we appreciate your support!!!

  5. Mary, I hope chocolate finds its way into your life today. Somehow!

    Charlene, so what did Nikki decide for her cake? They have so many elegant flavors these days.

    Cheryl, a heart-shaped cake? Dang–only you would have one made early on Valentine’s Day!

  6. Linda, great to hear from you! Is your book tour done? Are you back home again?

    Hey, Julie and Taryn! Really–I hope you make this cake sometime. Your families will love it!

  7. It looks wonderful and great! I received a bunch of beautiful rose and a pack of sweet chocolate! I’m so happy and lucky. I just met my BF last year on It’s interesting and we have the further plan.
