Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

From cousin Emily: This was one of my favorite cakes growing up.  I had forgotten about it until my Great-Aunt Dean shared this with me at a family reunion in rural Virginia.  I have seen many different versions of it, but this is the one I always come back to.
Chocolate Chip Pound Cake
1 chocolate cake mix (I like Devils Food)
1 large box instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream (I use light sour cream)
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs, beaten
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Mix dry cake mix with dry pudding mix.  Add sour cream, oil, and eggs. Beat with electric mixer for 2 minutes.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Bake in greased tube or bundt cake pan at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes.  This cake is delicious without any frosting.  If you want a richer cake, frost with Ganache.

I personally know someone who will eat this for breakfast.

Note: I happen to have a mini bundt cake pan, so that is why the picture looks like doughnuts instead of bundt cake.


  1. Wow. That does look delicious, and the presentation is really nice!
