Heaven Cake

My mom makes this cake--Heaven Cake.  And as it's name states, it is heavenly.  She only makes it around Christmas.  You know, when it's ok to eat bad stuff?

While I was home all weekend being Nurse Ashley, all I could think about was a piece of Heaven Cake.  So, I thought "why do I have to wait until Christmas?!"  So I made one.  And then proceeded to eat it.  All of it.

It's just too good not to share, so I thought the Tuesday Tea link up with Sam & the girls would be the perfect place!  It is best enjoyed warm.  For breakfast.

Heaven Cake

1 box of Yellow Cake Mix
1 {3 1/2 oz} Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water
6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bar {4 oz} of grated German Chocolate*
8 oz. sour cream
4 eggs

Combine all ingredients except Chocolate and mix until combined.  Turn speed of mixer up to medium and beat batter for 3 minutes.  Fold in chocolate chips and grated German Chocolate by hand.  

Pour batter into greased and floured bundt pan {or two loaf pans}.  Bake at 350 for 55 minutes {loaves, 45ish minutes}

Test for doneness with toothpick.  Contain yourself while you wait for it to cool before slicing a piece.

*Don't skip on this.  The German Chocolate makes this recipe.  I usually chop mine up small in the food processor.  I don't know if I even have a grater?  Find it in the baking aisle--it looks like this
