Ingredients:  
Vegetable oil spray for misting pan
Flour for dusting the pan
1 package (18.25 oz.) plain devil's food cake
or dark chocolate fudge cake mix
1 package (3.9 oz.) chocolate instant pudding mix
4 large eggs
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. warm water
1/2 c. vegetable oil (canola, corn, safflower, soy bean or sunflower)
1 1/2 c. semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
Directions:
1. Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350║ F. Lightly mist a 12 c. bundt pan with vegetable oil spray, then dust with flour. Shake out the excess flour. Set the pan aside.
2. Place the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, warm water and oil in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low for one minute. Stop the machine and scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2-3 minutes more, scraping the sides down again if needed. The batter should look thick and well combined. Fold in the chocolate chips, making sure they are well distributed throughout the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing it out with the rubber spatula. Place the pan in the oven.
3. Bake the cake until it springs back when lightly pressed with your finger and just starts to pull away from the sides of the pan, 45-50 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool for 20 minutes. Run a long sharp knife along the edge of the cake and invert it onto the rack to cool completely, 20 minutes more. Or invert it onto a serving platter to slice and serve while still warm.
