Kahlua Chocolate Cake

Courtesy of my mom...I'm not sure where she got it from but it has always been my go-to dessert at Potlucks and dinners. I actually just made the cake tonight as a Christmas Present for a friend of mine and as always, thumbs up and stomach rubbing all around! :)

1 package Devil's Food Chocolate Cake Mix
1 package Chocolate Pudding Mix
2 cups Sour Cream
4 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/3 cup Kahlua Liqueur or other Coffee flavored liqueur (optional)
6 oz (usually half a package) of semi sweet mini chocolate chips
--optional sour cream frosting:
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
or you can just sprinkle the top of the cake with powdered sugar and garnish with edible flowers, berries etc.
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Combine cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, eggs, oil, and kahlua and stir together in a big bowl until well blended
-Stir in chocolate chips
-Ladle into well oiled Bundt pan (ladle in big scoops then smooth out the top, but dont compact into the pan, it will settle as it bakes)
-Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, checking often with a skewer (till the skewer comes out clean)
-Let cool for 15 minutes in the pan before inverting onto plate. Let cool for another 10 to 15 minutes before sprinkling with sugar or frosting.
