Easy Chocolate Chip Cake Recipe – this doctored cake mix recipe is easy and delicious! Paired with brown sugar buttercream – it’s just like eating a cookie! #cake #chocolatechip #dessert #butter #cookie



  • 1 Butter Cake Mix (I prefer Pillsbury Golden Butter Recipe)
  • Optional: Add an extra 1/2 cup of cake mix or all-purpose flour to make the cake a little more dense.
  • 1 box (3.4 oz) instant vanilla pudding mix (not prepared)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup real butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Thoroughly mix all ingredients together.
  2. Bake at 325° for about 38-45 minutes (longer, depending on pan size), until the cake springs back when touched or you can test it in the center with a toothpick. Cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then turn out on a cooling rack to cool completely.
  3. I recommend vanilla buttercream or brown sugar buttercream for this cake!
