Today was the day for getting the new SMO’s. Bubba was NOT looking forward to getting these things – AT ALL! I have to be honest and say that I was anticipating him pitching a total hissy fit at the office – but he didn’t! He was so good and actually said “thank you” to Mr. Jimmy…he said the new braces “don’t hurt at all”! Last year's braces event...... and oh how he’s grown. (Yes, check out the hair cut….)
In his typical form, he wants to do it all by himself!!!
Now onto the saga of the Chocolate Chip cake….if you’ve been with me for a while, you know that Hubby makes over 100 little chocolate chip bundt cakes for the folks in his office…it is a long standing holiday tradition….This year, he has two office parties he must attend. (His regular one, and his remote Shelby location that he still oversees)…the remote local party is tomorrow. Hubby was reffing all weekend and was absolutely exhausted last night. Since I am such a wonderful wife I offered to help him and get them started today so he would not have to be up all tonight making about 40 little cakes.
I finished them all and have them all wrapped looking pretty.
Here ya go…THE Chocolate Chip Cake…
Preheat over to 350 degrees
1 box of vanilla cake mix
1 small box of vanilla instant pudding
1 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of oil
1/2 cup of water
4 eggs beaten
Dump all of that into mixer and mix until ingredients are, well, mixed.
Now add one grated german chocolate bar.
and one bag of semi sweet chocolate chips.
Stir until all mixed up….
Pour mixture into greased or well sprayed bundt pan. Cook for 50 minutes….If you are going to use the little bundt style pan – it takes about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of batter per little cake and should cook for about 20 minutes.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar when cool…..I’ve read you can also do as a regular layer cake and use a cream cheese frosting….
The growing stack of cakes….
One lone cake…isn’t it cute?
Sprinkle with powdered sugar….
And all wrapped up….
All of them ready to go for tomorrow’s festivities in Shelby.
