With Father’s Day coming - you might be looking for an awesome dessert to go along with Dad’s favorite meal. Most men don’t require fru-fru desserts - just something sweet and rich. But I doubt any woman would pass this up either (after all - it’s chocolate!) Serve this on Father’s Day and you’ll have more time to fuss over his steak & potatoes.
This cake recipe has been all over the internet, but my friend Pat shared it with over 500 women at our Stake Women’s Conference in March. Anyone who took a forkful was immediately hooked.
If the cake (by itself) isn’t enough to win you over - just try it with this wonderful hot fudge topping (with a drizzle of hot caramel for good measure)
It’s amazingly simple because of the use of those good old “convenience” foods - a cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, and chocolate chips. It’s truly uncomplicated. It bakes up moist and chocolatey...so good.
The first time I made it, I was obsessive about making sure it didn’t stick to the bundt pan. I greased & floured my pan - which wasn’t necessary at all. But, you know your pan better than I do - adjust accordingly.
As you can tell - I experimented with serving the cake standing upright, or resting comfortably on it’s side in a serving dish. Both work well - but if you want more room for toppings to seep into the rich cake - let it recline in order to soak up all those calories.
I loved discovering chocolate chips in each bite - that just put it over the top.
Pat garnished hers with her signature rich whipped topping - which only made it better. But it’s delicious without. The cake keeps well for over a week (if it lasts that long...)
