  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups mini chocolate chips

  • Grease the bottom and sides of the cake pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Add all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a large mixing bowl. Beat just until the mixture is well mixed and batter is smooth.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Mix thoroughly.
  • Pour batter into the prepared cake pans. Bake as indicated on the cake mix package, adding 5 to 10 minutes to the time (approximately 40 minutes total). Watch the cake carefully for doneness. Check doneness by poking with a toothpick in the center of the cake. Toothpick should come out clean.
  • When the cake is done, remove it from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Then remove from the pans and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Be sure the cake is cooled before frosting.
  • Beat Crisco with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  • Add the sugar and beat until well blended.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and beat on medium to high speed until fluffy.
  • Place the first layer of the cooled cake on a cake plate and spread with a layer of frosting.
  • Add the second layer and use the remaining frosting to cover the top and sides of the cake. Spread evenly.
  • If desired add a decorative pattern to the frosting.
