Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

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.

CAKE

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

4 eggs

3/4 cup sour cream

1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips

GANACHE

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.)
