The BEST Chocolate Cake Ever

I am completely addicted to chocolate cake with white frosting. Anytime my birthday comes around you can guarantee that's what I'm making. I've been this way since I was young. There's just something about the mix that keeps me coming back for more. I'm not picky with my chocolate cake-- I usually settle for a box mix and some homemade frosting and I'm set. So when I saw this recipe for The BEST Chocolate Cake Ever on Kevin and Amanda I was positive I would like it but I wasn't convinced I would like it better than a box (guys- that stuff is good!). I was so completely beyond wrong that it almost hurt. This cake is hands down the BEST chocolate cake I have ever eaten. And the Buttercream Frosting is the perfect topper. It's light and fluffy with a rich taste that blends perfectly with the moist and delicious chocolate. This must be your go to chocolate cake recipe. You're life will finally be complete.

The BEST Chocolate Cake Ever

1 box devils food cake mix
1 small package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix together everything except chocolate chips. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into cake pan of choice. For cooking time use the back of the devils food cake box as a guide and then add 5-10 minutes more. It took 34 minutes for me to bake 2 9" round cakes. (my oven is REALLY hot though- could take more time)

Buttercream Frosting
1 cup shortening
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

In a mixing bowl cream shortening until fluffy. Add sugar and continue creaming until well blended (it will be dry at this point) Add salt, vanilla and whipping cream. Blend on low speed until moistened and then beat on high until frosting is fluffy.
