Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake


This is the cake I made for my husband's birthday. I have made it before and just loved it. The original recipe came from All Recipes.com and the photo came from there as well. I changed the recipe slightly from the original. I do NOT add chocolate chips to the cake batter. The cake is very rich, and I think would be too rich if I added another 2 cups of chocolate chips. Also, I have halved the original recipe for the chocolate sauce for the same reason I do not add the chocolate chips to the batter. I am not a huge fan of using boxed cake mixes, so I am going to try making this cake with a recipe I have for a dry cake mix. Check out the original recipe; there are a lot of good suggestions in the comments on changing the cake a bit . . . I think I may try the Kahlua one next!

Chocolate Fudge Pudding Cake
1 Pkg (18.25 oz) devil's food cake mix
1 pkg (3.9 oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
1 C sour cream

Chocolate sauce
3 TBS butter
1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 10 inch Bundt pan.
2. Mix all cake ingredients together. Beat for 4 min. Pour into Bundt pan and bake 60 min (this is different from the original recipe . . . both time I made this cake it too longer than the recipe stated) or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from pan. Cool completely.
3. To make the sauce: Melt butter and c. chips together in a double broiler. Drizzle over cake.

Enjoy!

Fasting and the Current State of Our Church

I love researching diets.  If it is new and popular, I probably have read about it some and maybe have even tried it.  Lately, fasting has gained popularity.  You can find books that will provide research on just how good fasting is for the body.  And, I have been intrigued, mainly because I am horrible at fasting and the thought of restricting myself from eating food completely sounds too extreme. 



As Catholics we are called to days of fasting and abstinence, and for as strong as I like to think I am, I am quite a wimpy "faster."  But, after reading a great deal about fasting and its physical benefits, I started to feel like God was asking me to get more serious about fasting, not for the physical benefits but for the spiritual ones.  My husband and I were out for a walk the other night and I was talking about my new found respect for fasting and how I feel called to do it more, for spiritual reasons, and I started to speak about how amazing it is that fasting has so many …

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48


There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  


About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …

Settling In

I find it ironic that the last post I posted was about our move that did not happen and how God wanted me to be moldable.  When I typed those words and prayed those words, "God make me moldable," "Move to Wisconsin" was NOT what I was envisioning.  But, sometimes God's will is surprising and unexpected.

So, here we are.  18 days as Wisconsinites.  So many people have called and texted, asking me how we are doing and I often find my words fall short.  I am better at reflecting and writing out my thoughts, so this is for all those who have asked and are wondering . . .


We are doing well.  The move has felt very natural in so many ways.  It feels comfortable here. I haven't felt out of place or a "fish out of water" here at all. The kids all like it here.  Some miss their friends tremendously, which is expected.  One of my "littles" has shown some regression, also expected, but everyone is adjusting so well to the new house and neighborhood. …
