Easiest, Best Cakes Ever

8oz cream cheese, softened
1 box instant pudding mix
1 cup vegetable oil
8oz sour cream
1 box cake mix
1 can frosting
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a LARGE bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil, sour cream, milk and vanilla. Mix well to combine - batter will be thick.

Note :For the chocolate cake, I stirred in 2 cups of mini semisweet chocolate chips after mixing the batter.
Spread batter into your prepared (aka, greased) cake pan. Bake for 10 minutes plus whatever cooking time the box specifies for your pan.
Cool completely before frosting. Whip the canned frosting and the softened cream cheese together; spread atop cake.
