One of the easiest and most delicious cakes I make is my Cream Cheese Pound Cake. You can whip up in no time and no matter where you take it, everyone loves it! I shared the recipe the other day and everyone said they would like to see a similar one made with chocolate and sour cream. Who am I to argue...so I got right to work. This cake turned out dense, heavy and has a rich chocolate flavor. I added in a handful of chocolate chips to take it over the edge, however you can always leave them out. I hope you enjoy both recipes!
Ingredients are as follows:
1 1/2 C butter, softened
8 oz. sour cream
2 1/2 C sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C cocoa
1 tsp. baking powder
2 C flour
1 C chocolate chips, optional
Preheat oven to 325 degrees; grease a 10" bundt pan.
Cream together the butter, sour cream and sugar.
Add eggs in, one at a time, and mix until incorporated. Stir in vanilla.
By hand, stir in the cocoa, baking powder and flour.
Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 55-60 minutes; until a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool for ten minutes, remove from pan and continue to cool. Slice, serve and enjoy!
