Father’s Day Cake!

You know my husband’s a chocoholic, right? Well, in honor of Father’s Day he got his greatest wish–a chocolate cake.

Behold the cake:


I made it yesterday, but made John wait until today to eat any.

So today during Sunday School he leans over to me and whispers, “So, um, after church . . . can we have some chocolate cake and open presents?”

And that’s exactly what we did, throwing in some actual lunch in there someplace, too. The cake was good. Very moist, and very rich.

Here’s the recipe, if you want it:

1 chocolate cake mix
1 package instant chocolate pudding
1 cup sour cream
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water
1 bag chocolate chips

Mix and bake according to directions on cake mix box.

I made Perfectly Chocolate Frosting from Hershey’s. Melt 1/2 cup butter. Mix in 2/3 cup cocoa. Then gradually alternate mixing in three cups powdered sugar and 1/3 cup milk. Finally stir in 1 tsp. vanilla.
