Unholy Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Glaze

"This is not the original title for the cake." I got both the cake recipe and the glaze recipe from allrecipes.com. The cake is very heavy and brownie-like."

1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used mini-chips so they wouldn't sink in the pan)

3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In a large bowl, mix together the cake and pudding mixes, sour cream, oil, beaten eggs and water. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour batter into a well greased (I used baking spray and dusted with flour) 12 cup bundt pan.
Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until top is springy to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean. (kind of hard to tell with the melty chocolate chips) Cool cake thoroughly in pan at least an hour and a half before inverting onto a plate. When cake is nearly cooled, make glaze:

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.
Drizzle warm glaze over top of cake, letting it run down the sides.

And here are my kids enjoying the batter
