My Favorite Bundt Cake

Over the years this recipe has been tried and true over and over, epitomizing the name it was given. Across the board, it is always the favorite and I never go home with even so much as a CRUMB left!

1pkg. Chocolate cake mix (the fudgier, the better)
1 small pkg. instant choc. pudding
4 eggs
1/2 C canola oil
1/2 C. water
1 C. sour cream or plain yogurt
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
powdered sugar, to sprinkle

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350 & spray bundt pan with baking spray. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except chips & powdered sugar. Beat until well blended. Stir in choc. chips and turn into bundt pan. Bake 50-60 minutes. Let cool 10-15 mins. in pan, then place on serving plate and cool completely.  Sift powdered sugar over the top. *Do NOT over bake!

Creamy Fruit Salad

One of the children asked me to start making more fresh fruit salads. With Spring on it's way and Conference weekend upon us, I created this yummy dish as tempting side. I'm happy to say it was a healthy success!

1 C red grapes
1 pkg. honey glazed almond slivers
1 honeydew melon (or melon of choice)
1 pint fresh stawberries
1 C blueberries
1 apple, peeled, sectioned and sliced into chuncks
3/4 C nonfat sour cream
2 tsp. truvia or splenda (sugar substitute)

Combine fruit in large bowl. Mix sugar substitute to sour cream and fold into fruit mixture. Add sliced almonds and serve cold. Best with sandwiches.
