Chocolate Chip Pound Cake
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling
I cut this recipe in half for the two of us, and baked the cake in an 8x4 and 5x3-inch loaf pan. We enjoyed the larger cake right away and tucked the smaller one in the freezer for another time. We thought the cake was delicious and I'll definitely be making it again!
I just finished making this pound cake. It's still cooling but looks and smells very good. This is very large cake and saving some of the batter for cupcakes is suggested. Batter may ooze out of 10 cup bundt or tube pan. I did dust the chocolate chips . I hate when cooks blame author of recipes for their mistakes. A seasoned baker would notice that this was too much cake batter for 10 cup cake pan. Most cooks have seen the tip from other bakers about dusting the chocolate chips. The sour cream container now has 12 oz instead of 16 oz now so this is what I used. This problem didn't seem to affect the texture of the cake. My bag of chocolate chips had 12 oz so used what I had. One of these day we bakers are going to complain on social media about the manipulation of the sizes of our groceries!! Anyway. I'm rating this recipe wonderful!!
Made the cake for Christmas and my family and friends loved it
Cake was delicious and after a day, the cake was gone....all eaten. I used mini-chocolate chips instead of the regular size. In addition, I planned on doing the glaze but ran out of time. The powder sugar dusting mentioned by some below looked just as fancy as the glaze. I have tried a couple bundt cakes over the years and they always came out of the pan in pieces. I finally figured out that you need to paint the butter into the pan to get all of the corners....this worked perfect!
I just made this for a lunch for our church's college group. I used a 12 inch pan and the finished cake rose about 2 inches over the top (as another reviewer noted). I also found the batter felt a little too thick, so I added about 4 tablespoons of water and it was fine.This is a gorgeous, rich pound cake and everyone loved it and came back for seconds. I will definitely save this recipe and make it again.
Delicious! But as one reviewer mentioned, the recipe makes double the portion needed for a bunt pan.
It's not bad, but the batter was REALLY thick and rose 2" over the rim of the bunt pan. I double /triple checked the recipe as i was making and afterwards to be sure I hadn't missed a step or measured wrong. Not what I was expecting.
I didn't make the glaze for the top, but really, it didn't need it! It was great as is!
This cake turns out perfect! Love the chocolate glaze!!
I found this cake to be just okay. I thought it would be great due to all the rave reviews.
