Some people asked about this at the bonfire. There's no beer, but there's Bourbon. That counts for something right?

Chocolate Chip Bourbon Cake

1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
1 pkg. instant chocolate pudding
4 eggs
1 cup water
? cup vegetable oil
2 t. vanilla
? cup sour cream
1 cup chocolate chips
Bourbon Syrup (see below)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a Bundt pan.

Combine eggs, water, oil, vanilla and sour cream in mixing bowl and stir well. Add dry ingredients and beat for 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into prepared Bundt pan and bake for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes in pan, then turn onto plate or cake platter.

Bourbon Syrup

? cup water
2/3 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/3 cup Bourbon

Stir together water and sugar in small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook without stirring for 5 minutes. Cool syrup to warm, then add vanilla and Bourbon. Brush over hot cake until completely absorbed.
