The Best Chocolate Cake

For my little girls first birthday we had a ladybug theme. I didnt want everybody's mouths to be red after eating all of the treats, so I made these delicious chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting. These are always moist and I promise you wont regret the extra calories. Its totally worth it.

The Best Chocolate Cake
Recipe Source:
1 box Devil’s Food Cake
1 pkg Jell-O Instant Chocolate Pudding
1 cup Sour Cream
1 cup Vegetable Oil
4 Eggs, beaten
1/2 cup Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 cups Mini Semisweet Chocolate Chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

2. In a very large bowl , mix together everything except chocolate chips. Batter will be thick. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into cake pan(s) of choice. 

3. For cooking time, use the cooking times on the back of the devil’s food cake box as a guide and usually add 10 mins to whatever it says. Then do the toothpick check, and if it’s not done, check on it every 5 mins after that.

Buttercream Frosting
Recipe Source:
1 cup Butter, room temperature
8 cups Powdered Sugar
1/2 cup Milk
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

1. In an electric mixing bowl fitted with the paddle attachment or if you don't have an electric mixing bowl use a large bowl and an electric mixer, mix the butter until smooth and creamy, this will take a few minutes.

2. Add 4 cups of the sugar, the milk and vanilla and on low speed mix until combined.
3. Add two more cups of sugar and on low speed mix until light and fluffy. Add the remaining two cups of powdered sugar.
