Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 8 ounces German sweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 cup chocolate syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 4 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon shortening, divided

Directions

  1. Cream butter in a large bowl. Gradually mix in sugar. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine buttermilk and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with flour, beginning and ending with flour. Add melted chocolate, chocolate syrup and vanilla. Stir in 1 cup miniature chocolate chips. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 325° for 1-1/4 hours or until a toothpick comes out clean. Immediately invert cake onto a serving plate; cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, in a microwave, melt white chocolate and 2 tablespoons shortening; stir until smooth. Cool slightly; drizzle over cake. Melt remaining chips and shortening in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat; cool slightly. Drizzle over white chocolate.
