Four Layer Chocolate Cake


1 chocolate cake mix (I used Betty Crocker chocolate fudge)
1/3 cup sour cream
3 eggs
1 cup water
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 pkg. (4 serving size) chocolate pudding

Frosting (adapted slightly from Kraft Foods)

1 pkg. (4 serving size) pudding, flavor of your choice (I used chocolate)
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup regular milk
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 1/2 cups cool whip
chocolate shavings (for garnish)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two 9" round cake pans.
2. Mix all cake ingredients in large mixing bowl for 3 minutes. Divide into prepared cake pans. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Invert cakes onto cooling racks and cool completely. Cut each layer horizontally in half to make four cake layers.
3. Mix pudding mix, milk, and powdered sugar in medium mixing bowl for 2 minutes. Gently fold in cool whip.
4. Lay one cake layer on serving dish, bottom down. Frost with 1/4 of the frosting. Repeat layers and frost top of cake with remaining frosting. Garnish with chocolate shavings and whipped cream if desired.
