Easy peasy recipe if you have house guests and need a quick no-frosting cake:
Take one chocolate cake mix (I like Betty Crocker triple fudge)
Add 3 eggs, 1 cup of sour cream, 1 teaspoon of cayenne, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 teaspoon of cardamom, 1/2 cup of oil and 1/4 cup of water. Mix thoroughly. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes in a well greased bundt pan. Serve with ice cream, or alone. Watch guests inhale.
This cake is slightly spicy, earthy and incredibly moist. It is absolutely delicious and a super simple answer when entertaining.
