My Girl Paula: Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

I'm a little bit late on this post. I wanted to make this for dinner at my parents' for tomorrow, so I waited until tonight to make it. I will let you know tomorrow night how it tastes. As much as I want to dig in, I will be good and wait!
The cake was friggin' awesome. Very moist and just plain delicious!


4 eggs
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 package butter recipe cake mix
One 3.4 oz package instant vanilla pudding mix
One 3.4 oz package instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 oz chocolate chips
confectioners' sugar for dusting


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a tube pan or bundt pan.

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, water and vanilla by hand. Stir in the cake mix and pudding mixes. Slowly add the butter and oil, and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into the prepared pan.

Bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes, then invert onto a cake plate. Sift confectioners' sugar over the cake, or drizzle chocolate sauce over it, if desired.

I know this has nothing to do with your chocolate chip pound cake although it looks delicious! I wanted to say congrats on the 13.8lb weight loss. That is such an accomplishment. I didn't know you could get the points to a recipe online from Weight Watchers. I do have etools. I will have to check it out. Thanks for the info!
