Description

This is the most Ridiculous Vanilla Cake… seriously the softest, most moist cake EVER – it literally melts in your mouth! A vanilla cake recipe topped with sweet icing and garnished with white chocolate chips – you’ve got to get in on this goodness!


Ingredients

Scale

Cake

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) box vanilla cake mix
  • 1 (4 serving sized) box instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 (8- ounce) container sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips

Icing

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • white chocolate chips to garnish

Instructions

Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Liberally grease a 10- inch bundt pan with butter or shortening and lightly dust with flour. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine all the cake ingredients. Mix on low for 30 seconds until combined and then on medium speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 50-55 minutes, until the cake is set. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then invert the pan onto a cake plate.

Icing

  1. In a medium bowl whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. Pour over the cake.
  2. You can ice the cake when it’s warm or cooled.
  3. Sprinkle with white chocolate chips if desired. Note – if you sprinkle white chips on the cake when it’s warm they will melt slightly.

Notes

This cake was originally posted in 2016 using 16- ounces of sour cream. I received a fair amount of comments letting me know you thought that produced too dense and wet a cake. I updated the recipe in 2021 using 8- ounces of sour cream. Wanted to include this note for those of you who enjoyed the original recipe!

Store airtight for up to 3 days at room temperature.
