RECIPE WED # 14: Rich Sour Cream Devil's Food Cake with Caramel-Chocolate Chips Trifle

Necessity is the mother of invention, right? So it goes with this tasty little ditty. 

I had made this cake for my chocoholic 4 year old daughter's birthday and because my blasted oven is so stinking hot ( I know buy an oven thermometer all ready will ya?) the outside edges were over baked before the center was cooked through

So I cut off the crunchy parts and we snacked or I should say CRUNCHED on them while I took the rich and delicious center and layered it with frosting making a trifle. Based on the dab of cake left in the bowl I would say it was a hit!

  • 1 Box mix Devil's Food Cake Mix
  • 8 oz  Caramel-Chocolate chips
  • 8 Oz sour cream
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 1/3 C Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 & 1/2 C Water

  • 2 Cans Vanilla Frosting
  • 1-3 T Sour Cream
  • 1-3 T Milk

  1.  Mix wet ingredients with wooden spoon in large bowl.
  2. Add dry ingredients (Leaving out chips) to wet and mix w/wooden spoon, then beat with mixer for 2-3 minutes until well combined
  3. Fold Chips in with wooden spoon and pour into 9"X13" Pan back according to directions adding 5-10 min extra if needed.
  4. Once cooled crumble cake break it up with clean hands and place a 1/3 of it in bottom of large CLEAR bowl 
  5. Layered the cake with 1/4 of (reserving majority of frosting for top of trifle) vanilla frosting whipped with sour cream and a splash of milk if needed to make thin enough
  6. Continue until last of cake and frost with rest of frosting.
