A Love for Chocolate Cakes
By Monica Resinger

Most of the time I bake cakes for birthdays only, but on occasion I'll make one 
just because. When it's one of our family member's birthday, they almost always 
request a chocolate cake. Here are my favorite chocolate cake recipes. I hope 
you enjoy them.

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cake
Serving Size : 12

This has to be my all time favorite chocolate cake. My husband's grandmother 
was in the hospital one time and one of the nurses let her try this cake which 
she loved
so she got the recipe. We have been making it for birthdays ever since. It is a 
bit rich, but if you like chocolate, it's for you.

Preparation Method
1 box chocolate cake mix -- any brand
3 ounces chocolate pudding mix -- instant
12 ounces chocolate chips
1 3/4 cups milk
2 eggs

Mix ingredients well and pour into prepared bundt pan.
Bake for 1 hour at 325*. Dust with powdered sugar.

beets from the garden!
