A chocolate  pudding cake topped with the fluffiest white frosting...


Ah..chocolate cake.  Good stuff, isn't it? What could be better? Um..well, how about some perfectly heavenly frosting on top of chocolate cake?  That's what we are servin' up today.  Some delightful chocolate cake which is made from a cake mix.  Yes, a cake mix.  I kinda love them. Sorry.  Packed with pudding mix, chocolate chips and a little buttermilk to mix it up for you.   Now, the frosting is not vanilla.  It kinda has a marshmallow fluff likeness to it.  It's dreamy and well..fluffy.  It's all very easy to bake up and is perhaps like heaven in the pan. The toughest part about this one is restraining yourself from eating the frosting with a spoon right from the bowl...
Enjoy :)
