Thanks to Aileen for sharing the recipe for Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cake. It's the cake she made for her husband's birthday.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes


  • Topping:
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Batter:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter


Mix topping ingredients in small bowl and set aside.

Heat oven to 350°. Grease and flour bundt pan. Sprinkle 1/4 topping in pan. For the batter ingredients, cream butter, add sugar and beat until smooth. Add unbeaten eggs, sour cream, baking power, soda, salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add flour last; beat until smooth. Batter will be very thick. Using a rubber spatula, spoon 1/3 of the batter over first layer of topping mix. Sprinkle 1/3 topping mix over batter. Continue with layers, ending with topping mix. Bake for 45-55 minutes. (Aileen begins checking for doneness at 40 minutes.) Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely before glazing.

For the glaze, melt chocolate and butter in microwave for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes in glass measuring cup. Place cooled cake on serving plate and drizzle with glaze.

Perfect for everyone, Member Heidi_Leigh

I love this cake! It is easy to make and take to dinner parties or church events. I have made this cake five times (so far) and everyone that has tried it loves it! It is a great dessert for a crowd and it can please both chocolate fans and those who don't care for overly rich dishes. I plan to make this again and again.
