Best Ever Chocolate Cake with Glaze

I've been making this cake for a couple of years now and it had definitely become a favorite.  It's so delicious and chocolately that you don't even really need frosting but the chocolate glaze adds a little something extra to it.  Enjoy!

1 package chocolate fudge cake mix
1 3.9 oz. package instant chocolate fudge pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup coconut oil
4 large eggs
1/2 cup warm water
1/3 cup milk
1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, oil, water and milk.  Mix on low and add eggs one at a time.  Once eggs are incorporated, mix on med high speed for 2 minutes.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Pour batter in well greased bundt pan.  Bake for 50 to 55 minutes at 350.  I start checking the cake at 50 minutes with a tooth pick to make sure it doesn't over bake.  Cool cake in bundt pan on wire rack for 30 minutes before removing.  Once cooled, place on plate, ready to add the glaze.

Chocolate Glaze
3/4 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
3 tbsp. butter
1 tsp light corn syrup
1/4 tsp. vanilla

In a double boiler over hot, but not boiling water, combine chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup.  Stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, then add vanilla. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes, this gives the glaze a chance to thicken up so it doesn't just slide completely down your cake.  Pour the glaze slowly over the cake, letting it drizzle down the sides.
