Doesn’t that look delicious? I think so too. Don’t you want a piece? Me too. But it went to my neighbor Amber for her birthday so I can’t tell you how glorious it was although it smelled pretty spectacular while baking. Guess I’ll just have to make it again.
I love looking straight down at a bundt cake, they are works of art.
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
3/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
4 oz semisweet or dark chocolate
1/3 cup heavy cream
more mini chocolate chips for sprinkling
1 For the cake, preheat oven to 350. Spray 10 – 12 cup bundt pan with cooking spray for baking.
2 In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
3 In a mixer bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3 – 5 minutes. Add in vanilla then add eggs, one at time, beating after each.
4 Mix in 1/3 of flour mixture then 1/2 the sour cream and repeat, ending with 1/3 of flour.
5 Stir in chocolate chips by hand and pour into prepared pan, smoothing out the top.
6 Bake 55 – 65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
7 Cool cake in pan for 15 minutes before removing to serving platter to cool completely.
8 For the ganache, chop chocolate into small pieces.
9 Heat cream until almost boiling then pour over chocolate and let sit for 2 minutes.
10 Whisk until smooth and drizzle over cake. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.
(A note from me – I didn’t have any heavy cream so I just whisked together some powdered sugar, some cocoa, and some milk until I had a pretty thick glaze and then poured it over the top of the cake.)
