Midnight Bliss Cake

We make this delicious, rich, chocolate cake for Christmas Eve
 to celebrate the birth of Jesus every year.
 We put on a candle for each of us,
 to symbolize the light of Christ inside of us.
 I thought this an appropriate cake since It is believed that Jesus was born at midnight.

Midnight Bliss Cake
1 pkg chocolate cake mix, any variety (we picked chocolate fudge)
1 pkg (4 serving size) chocolate instant pudding
4 eggs
1 container 8 oz sour cream
1/2 cup flavored coffee, prepared (I use International Foods French Vanilla)
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water
1 pkg 8 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate, chopped.

Heat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease and flour a tube pan (bundt cake)
Beat all ingredients except chopped chocolate in large bowl with mixer, until well blended and smooth. Stir in chopped chocolate and pour into prepared pan.
Bake 50-60 minutes until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

 No need for frosting with this cake, it's rich and that good!

This is very similar to a recipe my mom made when I was a kid, except hers doesn't call for coffee and it uses chocolate chips instead of baking chocolate. Hers is called Death by Chocolate! I forgot about this cake, I'll have to make it sometime, maybe I'll have to try the coffee in it this time. I came here from Simple Servings. It is always nice finding recipes. I will have a look around!
