1 package 2-layer sized devil's food or Cerman chocolate cake mix

1 8-oz carton dairy sour cream

1/2 cup cooking oil

1/2 cup water

4 eggs

1 4-serving size package instant chocolate fudge pudding mix

1/4 cup coffee liqueur

2 tablespoons lightly shredded orange peel (one orange grated)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 12-oz package semisweet chocolate pieces

powdered sugar


Grease and flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan. In large mixer bowl combine cake mix, sour cream, oil, water, eggs, pudding mix, liqueur, orange peel and cinnamon. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until blended, scaping sides of bowl constantly. Beat on



medium speed for 4 minutes. Stir in chocolate pieces. Pour into prepared pan. Bake in a 350 F oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the cneter comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

(i found that the plain looks didn't entice people to eat it at pot lucks, and have used a chocolate glaze, similar to that on eclairs
