Aldi Recipe Review: Extra Rich Dark Chocolate Cake

I'm sure you've noticed by now that on the back of most of Aldi's boxes, bags, containers, there is a recipe for how to use them, and what to do with them.  I usually try them, and every now and then come across one that begs to be shared.

Yesterday, I bought a box of Baker's Corner Devil's Food Cake for the purpose of making my Aldi-way cookies.  However, when I looked at the back of the box this morning, I was presented with a picture of this thick, velvety looking cake...and well, I caved.  I scoured my cabinets to see if I had all the ingredients.  The only thing I was lacking was sour cream - so I substituted plain yogurt instead. :)  Makes it healthy, right?

So here it is...copied from the box off Baker's Corner Devil's Food Cake Mix....

1 package Baker's Corner Devil's Food Cake Mix
4 large eggs
1 cup sour cream (as I said, I substituted plain yogurt and it worked fine)
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 package chocolate pudding & pie filling
3/4 chocolate chips (I think I used more like a cup...I like chocolate!

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except chocolate chips.  Beat with electric mixer or by hand.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Pour into well greased Bundt pan.  Bake 50-60 minutes.  Cool 20 minutes in pan and remove from pan for complete cooling.

NOTE:  I baked as cupcakes instead of as a bundt cake.  I baked for 23 minutes (the box recommends cupcakes be baked 20-25 I chose the middle!).
