Sweets for the Sweet

The Brambleberry Cottage's Fourteen Days of Love Day 9 - Sweets for the Sweet

I love to bake especially in the winter when the weather is cold outside.  I love the smell of something baking in my oven.  Yesterday I baked Chocolate Mini Loaves.  I really like to use cake mixes for quick baking.  I had a german chocolate cake mix in the pantry so this is what I made...

I didn't want to wait on a bundt cake to bake.  I needed chocolate really quick so I baked mine in  four mini loaf pans in about 30-35 minutes.  It was warm right out of the oven when I took this picture. Yummy!
This is the recipe I used...

Sour Cream Chocolate Bundt Cake

1 package chocolate cake mix
4 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup vegetable oil  (I use canola oil)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Mix cake mix, eggs, sour cream, warm water and oil in a large mixing bowl.  Mix well scraping the sides with a rubber spatula.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 55 to 60 min.

This is very easy and quick to prepare.  I could have made a glaze for loaves but decided I didn't need one.  The loaves were delicious as they came right out of the oven.

Thank you for visiting and God Bless,

I love that you say you "needed chocolate really quick". I had to laugh at that comment. What is it about us women and chocolate?

I'll have to give your recipe a try.

When I need chocolate really quick it's a mix of special dark chocolate chips, chopped pecans and marshmellows. Okay - it's more like a candy bar - but it's got the main ingredient...chocolate in it. My mom reminded me one day that she got me started on that a long time ago. I just grabbed some choc chips between reading posts. Ha. Jenn

It made us hungry, can't wait to smell it either.

There's not much of anything in the whole world like warm cake, straight from the oven.
This sounds so so delicious.

Oh wonderful -- I can almost smell it too! I bet it's so good warm and fresh right out of the oven. Tried to post yesterday on your sweet kitty post -- pet love is so sweet as my furry boy sits curled at my feet right now!

Oh my! That looks sooooo good, I am glad I can't smell it or my diet would be out the window!
