Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

Submitted by Courtney Mangum via Marcia Brisson
From Katherine Reed, Hypnobirthing Instructor Extraordinaire

1 package German chocolate cake mix
1 small (3.9 oz) package Jell-O INSTANT chocolate pudding mix
4 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour cream
2 cups chocolate chips
½ cup hot water

Combine all ingredients up through sour cream, adding hot water just as all the ingredients are coming together. Once thoroughly mixed, add chocolate chips. Pour into a well-greased bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Check with a toothpick to make sure it’s completely done, and don’t overbake. Remove promptly from pan and let cool on a cooling rack. When cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar.

**Note from Marcia
It is best served warm the next day, the first day I could taste the powder from the pudding mix. I drizzled chocolate frosting on it but it was way too rich. I think it would be better with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
