Don't Forget... National Chocolate Cake Day...January 27th!

Yep! I told you we celebrate all the holidays. Well, all the main ones plus any obscure ones involving chocolate. So Monday is National Chocolate Cake Day, and here is our very favorite one in case you want to celebrate too. This recipe came from a book called "The Cake Mix Doctor". Enjoy!

Darn Good Chocolate Cake


  1. 1 box devil's food cake mix
  2. 1 box (3.9 oz.) chocolate instant pudding
  3. 4 eggs
  4. 1 cup sour cream
  5. 1/2 cup warm water
  6. 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  7. 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mist a Bundt pan with Pam and lightly dust with flour.
  2. Blend cake mix, pudding, eggs, sour cream, water, and oil in mixer.
  3. Mix on low speed for 1 minute. Then beat on medium speed 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour into prepared pan.
  6. Bake 45 to 50 minutes.
  7. Let cool about 20 minutes. Invert onto platter.
  8. Enjoy!

Happy National Chocolate Cake Day, friends!


  1. Oh my, that looks soooo good. I may start celebrating that holiday too!

  2. Wow, the cake sounds like it would be so moist, and your presentation is beautiful! Well, now that I know, I have to eat chocolate cake!

  3. Oh my goodness, how did I miss National Chocolate Cake Day before this??? Thank you, thank you!

  4. Well looks like I'll be heading back to the store! Can't miss that kind of holiday :)

  5. What would we do without you??!! We wouldn't have a clue when all of our favorite chocolaty days should be celebrated :) Thanks for the early heads up. Maybe I can actually get my act together to make chocolate cake (not like I need an excuse to make/devour chocolate) and enjoy it. And, it will also be in honor of my dad's bday, which is also tomorrow.

  6. I can do this! and I will do this. one big yum yum yum.

  7. Just one word: YUM!--thanks for sharing. Blessings

  8. Looks delicious, Billie Jo! I made some brownies yesterday...love a good chocolate dessert. :) Hope you're having a great weekend!

  9. Mmmmmmmm....not the same recipe...mine has coffee in it and a few other things....mmmmmmmmmm....just the same. Chocolate is chocolate.

  10. I could do this with a regular chocolate cake recipe, right? Like maybe a chocolate chunk cake mix? We're celebrating!!

  11. Oh wow, I had no idea about National Chocolate Cake Day. May be trying this recipe tonight. Looks so good - and calorie free too, right?

  12. Now that sounds like a holiday I could get behind!!!!

  13. One of my favorites!!! We call our version "icebox chocolate cake" but it has the exact same ingredients! (This was the recipe I attached (along with all the dry ingredients) in a brand new bundt pan for Mary & Ben's classroom teachers!)

    Happy Chocolate Cake Day!

  14. We had chocolate cake today, too! Love it!

  15. Are you serious?! Today is National Chocolate Cake Day!!!! Well, what am I waiting for...I am headed to the kitchen to start baking - what a great excuse to indulge myself in pure chocolate bliss :) haha Thanks for sharing, sweet friend. Hugs to you!

  16. Hi Billie Jo! I just yelled over to my husband the good news! Chocolate Cake Day? This is a wonderful country, isn't it??
    I'll have to try the cake you have here. I'll bet it is 'darn good.' Thanks for sharing!
    Happy Monday :)

  17. Hi Billie Jo,
    I love chocolate cake! In fact, It is usually what I choose for my birthday cake (if not cheese cake).
    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment on my Goodbye post.
    I will be back, and until then, I will pop in to see how you are doing.
