Tips

Triple Chocolate Cake

Triple Chocolate Cake

First off I use Duncan Hines cake mix because this mix rises higher then the others, I also add a box of instant chocolate pudding, and a cup of chocolate chips. The recipe calls for 1 1/4 cups of water, 1/4 cup of vegetable oil, and 3 eggs. Bake at 350* for 40-45 minutes. Grease and flour pan. Add chips after mixing everything together. I use whipped cream instead of frosting. I also micro wave my piece of cake, it makes the chips melt then I add the whipped cream. Its totally yummy! Pam

When I make this for a special occasion cake, I get the gel tubes of icing and write name or celebration comment or what ever. The pineapple rings look like Life Savor candies. It's easy and really cute.
