This recipe uses instant pudding and a box cake mix. This is a cake you can take to a friend who’s going through a hard time or the one that you forgot was going through a hard time months ago. Always better late than never! And no one will know it wasn’t made entirely from scratch.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a (14-cup) Bundt pan.2.
Place the cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, oil, water, and eggs in large bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment; beat at low speed until just blended, about 30 seconds. Increase the speed to medium, and beat 3 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.3.
Fold in the chocolate chips, and pour into a prepared pan.4.
Bake in the preheated oven until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.5.
Cool in the pan 10 minutes; remove from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely, about 1 hour. Lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar.
