Jane’s Death by Chocolate Cake



2 large eggs

¾ cup vegetable oil

¾ cup warm water

8 ounces sour cream

1 package devil’s food cake mix

1 small package instant chocolate pudding mix

1 12-ounce package chocolate chips


Combine the eggs, oil, water and sour cream. Beat well. Add the cake mix and pudding. Beat until smooth. Fold in chips

Pour into greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes (I think it takes at least 10 minutes longer.)

Let cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes. Invert onto rack/plate until completely cooled. Sprinkle the top with icing sugar


For extreme chocolate death make the following icing:



4 tablespoons butter

2 ounces semi sweet chocolate

2 ounces unsweetened chocolate

3 tablespoons heavy cream

cup sifted icing sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla


Melt the butter and chocolate over simmering water (in a double boiler) stirring constantly. Remove from heat and whisk in cream. Add the sugar and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Coat the top of the cake and drizzle the icing down the sides of the cake.
