Chocolate Heart Bundt Cake

Just in time for Valentine's Day, right?!  Although not really in my case since Matt doesn't like chocolate. (Yes, you read that right.)

Typically, I much prefer cooking over baking, but on occasion, I'll bake up a little treat (okay, usually only if I'm put in charge of dessert for a party of get-together ;) ).

This occasion was for my step-dad's birthday celebration at my sister's house. The recipe comes from a cookbook that my sister made me as wedding gift... she's always coming up with the most thoughtful gifts- and this one has definitely gotten a lot of use!

On to the recipe...

1 package Duncan Hines Devil's Food Cake Mix
1 box Jell-O Instant Chocolate Pudding (3.9oz) (use powder only, do not prepare pudding)
16 oz. sour cream
1/2 cup vegatable oil
1/2 cup brewed coffee
4 eggs
1 cup chocolate morsels

Mix all ingredients together. Pour into non-stick bundt pan (sprayed with cooking spray). Bake on 350 for 45 minutes, or until cake springs back.Allow to cool completely before removing from pan.

I made the Cocoa-Cream Cheese frosting to go on top.

Take about a 1/2 cup of frosting and heat in the microwave for 15 seconds.

Pour over the cake.
