Hello, my name is Julia and my mother just sent me a recipe that she got from a sweet 93 year old cousin in Texas. My problem is that I need more specific instructions on what order to combine the various ingredients. I am a baking enthusiest and have even cooked professionally at one time, so I do know that certain chemical reactions occur depending on the various orders, types, and timing of combos used. But for the life of me, I can't quite figure out the proper method of combining that would produce the best result. Unfortunately, it isn't feasible for me to talk with the cook herself, as I am sure although she gave the recipe in a general way - she would have her own way to make the cake extra good. So I am doing the next best thing and asking an expert. Here are the ingredients in the exact order she said and the same directions. (now, keep in mind that by this time, it's 3rd person knowledge, so there is no telling what interpretations have been made.) ALSO, any ideas for a frosting, preferably white, so that I will have a "clean" palate to decorate with Easter type things. 3/4 cup oil 1 box yellow cake mix 1 box vanilla pudding (I assume this means instant) 1 cup sour cream 4 eggs 1 cup chocolate chips 1 cup chocolate syrup Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F) grease and flour bundt pan. Beat first 5 ingredients for 2 minutes. Divide batter in half. Mix together chocolate chips and chocolate syrup. After putting 1/2 batter mixture in pan, pour choclate mixture on top - swirl to create marbling effect - add remainder of batter. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
