The Poole's Famous Chocolate Chip Cake

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DYLAN!!  It was Dylan's Birthday July the 7th and we had an action packed couple of weekends at our lake house at Lake Texoma celebrating the 4th of July and Dylan's b-day.  We successfully wore the kids completely out on the tube both weekends.  I post this recipe in honor of Dylan's Birthday. I hope it was a good one, Buddy!

Our neighbors and dear friends, the Poole family are known to occasionally make this fabulous cake for our kids on their b-day because this is one of their favorites.  This recipe originated from Bryan's Mom, Nancy Poole.  Our family all agrees this is one of the best chocolate cakes we've ever tasted.  You can glaze the cake with the icing as in the recipe or just simply dust with powdered sugar.  A big slice of this cake is perfect paired up with a big, ice cold glass of milk.  We truly have the best neighbors ever!!  Thanks for sharing Lee and Bryan.

1 box yellow cake mix
1 small box vanilla instant pudding
1 small box chocolate instant pudding
4 eggs
1 - 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix all of the ingredients together.  Pour into a well greased and lightly flowered bundt pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack in the pan for at least 15 minutes.  Ice cake once it's completely cooled.

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup milk
3 oz chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

After the cake cooks, combine sugar, butter and milk and heat until it becomes to a boil.  Boil for 1 minute on low heat.  Remove from heat and add chocolate chips and vanilla.  Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake.
