It was super late, when the kiddos and I had a sweet tooth. I was tired and feeling lazy, thus the name. I wanted something super easy and quick, but we were out of everything. I had a cake mix, chocolate chips and pumpkin. Not even any eggs! I have to say this turned out even better than if I had made it the usual way. You actually don't really taste the pumpkin, but it made the cake extremely moist without any oil.

Easy and delicious.
Just dump everything into a bowl and beat it a little. I usually use a sheet cake pan and bake at 350 degrees F. for 35 minutes.
I use a 2 cup measure and put in the cup of water. If you add the mayonnaise to the water it is much easier to get out of the cup.
This is a really soft tender cake. Sometimes I add an egg - not sure why. LOL!
I always ice it with vanilla butter cream icing just because that is my preference. Enjoy!

This cake is delicious! I honestly have never made one that I liked better. And yes, this is still dessert, and still sugary... but it is much healthier than your average box cake. Please try this, it's so good!

Does anyone know how to turn a Devils Food cake mix into sour cream chocolate cake? How much sour cream to add and how do you adjust the other ingredients in the instructions?
The raspberry jam filling would be optional but it sounds divine to me right now!
My Mom gave me this recipe:
1 box devil's food cake mix
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C oil
1/2 C water
1 8oz. carton sour cream
Mix 3 min, bake at 350 in bundt pan for 55+ minutes. You can use cream cheese icing or chocolate icing; whatever you prefer. Great dense cake. Hope this helps.
I made this recipe substituting coconut oil for oil, plain yogurt for sour cream, then added 1 cup of dark chocolate chips. Yum.
