The best dark chocolate cake EVER!!!

This is what I'm making for tonight.  We're having a dessert night in Fusion tonight, and a Q & A session with Larry and I on the subject of courageous parenting!   This cake is TO LIVE FOR!!!  You will LOVE it.  Now, it needs NO ICING.  Please do not frost it, you would ruin it for sure.  (This is a little drizzle of chocolate syrup that's on it in the photo but really it needs nothing.  I have experimented and sprinkled it with powdered sugar before but even that was totally unnecessary.)  It's absolutely PERFECTO by itself just like it is.  One bite and you'll be hooked.  Really, I promise.  It's the most moist, dark, delicious semi-sweet chocolate cake you have EVER had.  Serve it with a side scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Your guests will moan the whole time they are eating it.   I have served this at countless dinners and special occasions.

Dark Chocolate Cake

1 box of devil's food cake mix 
Small box of instant devil's food pudding
8 oz. sour cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup lukewarm water
4 eggs
1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips - semisweet

Mix all ingredients except chips in large mixer bowl.  Beat until well mixed, about 5 minutes.  Mixture will be very thick.  Stir chips in manually.  Grease and flour a bundt pan, very well.  (I use shortening and then flour -- it seems to make the cake come out better when I use shortening.) Spoon mixture into pan.  Bake 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Let cool completely.  Carefully remove from pan.    


Side note: Some have asked if our sessions from the Spice Conference were recorded.  The first two were and are on our church podcast here.  The last two were not due to us having question and answer sessions and respecting the privacy of those asking the questions by not recording.
