My sis Beth (the cake baker/sewing queen) mentioned casually through email the other day that she was hiding from her kids eating Chocolate Rum Cake. Mmmmmmm....I was jealous of her and her cake. All afternoon I thought about her cake. That night I finally frantically went through my pantry checking to see if I had all the ingredients and amazingly enough I did! It is one of my favorite cakes ... I don't make it often because I tend to eat most of it, but while hubs was out cutting the grass (2 hour ordeal around here) and sweet girl was reading books in the bathroom I made my cake. Mmmmm...
Chocolate Rum Cake
1 cup sour cream
1 package devils food cake mix
1 small package instant chocolate pudding
½ cup oil
¼ to ½ cup rum
½ cup coffee
1 package chocolate chips
Mix first 7 ingredients then fold in chocolate chips. Pour into bundt pan and bake for 50 min in 350 degree oven.
Sprinkle powdered sugar on top once it has cooled.
If the "rum" turns you off, use rum extract or no rum at all. Of course the rum cooks out so never fear, you won't be drunk on this cake but you might just be happy from all the chocolate!
Next time PMS comes calling try it out...I doubt you will regret it!
