Black Velvet Cake Recipe

Black Velvet Cake  
Source: The Seven Chocolate Sins

2 cups slivered almonds, toasted
12 ounces chocolate chips
1 package devil's food cake mix
1 package instant chocolate pudding (3 oz)
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Sprinkle 1/2 cup almonds on bottom of greased 10-inch tube pan. Set aside rest of almonds and chocolate chips. Place remaining ingredients in mixer bowl. Beat 4 minutes. Fold in chips and almonds, then pour into pan. Bake in 350F oven 60 to 70 minutes. Cool 15 minutes and remove from pan. Serve with topping of whipped cream if desired. A nice touch would be to puncture finished cake with long-tined fork. Dribble over cake about 1/4 cup Kahlua. Then serve with sweetened whipped cream flavored with almond or vanilla extract.
