Patti Ann Lynch’s Chocolate Chip Cake

Patti says, “This cake is simple and easy to make, no mixer needed, and sweet to eat! It gets more moist each day. Bake the cake and share it with someone to make them happy, for me that’s the joy of baking.

I can’t take credit for the recipe, someone shared the recipe with me years ago. I don’t even know who and it’s not on the piece of paper that I have saved over the years, but I sure am glad they shared it!”

1 yellow or white cake mix
1 small box instant chocolate pudding
4 whole eggs
1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup water
1 (6-ounce ) bag chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix all ingredients together.
Add chocolate chips last.
Mix well.
Pour into greased/floured Bundt pan.
Bake at 350°F. 35 to 45 minutes.
