Hey, everybody! Are you all staying warm? I'm wearing two sweaters today!! I am just not a cold weather person! It does make me realize that Christmas is just around the corner! (17 days to be exact!). It's about that time for me to pull out tried and true recipes that my boys enjoy each Christmas. We do the traditional sausage and cheese balls, Christmas casserole for Christmas morning, and of course, cookies! We make lots of those! And even though we give away tons, we manage to eat almost as many.
I have a recipe that I wanted to share with y'all today. It's a chocolate chip cake that everybody goes bananas over! I make it for birthdays, surprises, and for Christmas. Everybody loves it except...me! I have a confession to make that only a few of you are aware of. I don't eat dark chocolate. Never have, never will. I simply don't like it! The smell sends me over the edge--especially when I was pregnant! So, if Mama makes one, it's for somebody she really loves!
My darlin' friend, Donita, shared this recipe with us years ago. So now, I share it with y'all.
Donita's Inside-Out Chocolate Bundt Cake
-1 pkg( 4-1/2 oz) Jello instant chocolate pudding
-1 pkg ( 2 layer size) Devil's Food cake mix ( with or w/o pudding)
-1 pkg chocolate chips ( I use milk chocolate and only 1/2 the bag)
-1 and 3/4 cup of milk
Combine all ingredients except chips until well-blended (about 2 minutes). Stir in the chips. Pour into a greased and floured ( I use Baker's Joy!) 12 cup tube or bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 5-55 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Do not overbake. Cool 15 minutes in the pan. (Do not tap cake on the counter before baking--causes chips to sink.)
I wanted to be able to have Mr. Linky here to make sharing your recipes easier, but, mercy, I have no idea how to do it! I can't even find it! If any of you know how and would be ever so sweet to share this info, I would greatly appreciate it!! If you want to leave your favorite recipe in the comments, or just have us go to your blog if you have a recipe to share, please let us know! I look forward to some new and yummy things to eat!!
