"Yummy, yummy, yummy I've got love in my tummy!"

If there is anything that bugs me, an there are a lot of things that bug me, it is people who cook and refuse to share their recipes. I love to cook, bake mostly, and have many times had the experience of asking a fellow cook for a recipe and then being told that they "don't share their recipes" - it drives me nuts! I am a firm believer in the sharing of fun and fabulous things so the hoarding of culinary knowledge is just beyond me.

Anyway, at work they do a weekly update that is pretty much just a newsletter that goes out every Friday but in the weekly update there is a section for "Recipe of the week" and this past week one of my lovely co-workers posted a recipe I had recently shared and I thought that I would like to share my beloved recipes with my blogging friends as well so this weeks recipe is: Triple Chocolate Bliss Cake (picture above).

You will need:

1 pkg. (2 layer size) chocolate cake mix (I use Devil's Food)

1 cup sour cream

1 pkg. (4 serving size) chocolate instant pudding

4 eggs

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup water

1 container (3 cups) thawed Cool Whip

1 pkg. (8 squares) semi-sweet chocolate chopped

1 1/2 cups raspberries

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease 12 cup fluted tube pan. Beat all ingredients except whipped topping, chocolate and raspberries in a large bowl with an electronic mixer on low speed until moistened. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes scraping the bowl occasionally. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake 50 minutes to 1 hour or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Loosen the cake from the sides of the pan with a knife and gently remove the cake. Cool cake completely on a wire rack. Place on a serving plate.

Microwave the whipped topping and chocolate in a microwaveable bowl on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after each minute. Drizzle over the cake. Spoon raspberries into the center of the cake. Store leftover cake in the refrigerator.

I think it is yummy, hope you all like it!

Oh Shem, you are so silly! You can't gain poundage from the recipe alone - that is why I like to recipe surf so much!
