How to Give a Boxed Cake Mix an Upgrade for Valentine's Day
- 1 box chocolate cake mix
- 3/4 cup strong coffee
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- 1 egg yolk
- 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- homemade fudge frosting
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare two 8-inch round pans and set aside.
Stir together the cake mix, pudding, eggs and melted butter.
Whisk in the remaining liquid ingredients until smooth.
Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
Bake for about 30 to 34 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with few crumbs.
Let cool on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes before removing the cakes from their pans.
Completely cool cakes before frosting.
