Chocolate Dessert #13

For Sue and other fans of my chocolate dessert cookbook, here's another installment for you. This isn't actually completely chocolate, but it all disappeared pretty much instantly. Even though all 9 kids were home, that's still some accomplishment. I'll let you be the judge.

CHOCOLATE DESSERT #13:
SOUR CREAM CHOCOLATE CHIP CAKE

1 stick butter
1-1/4 cups sugar

2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt

1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream the butter with sugar and eggs until fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Beat in the sour cream and vanilla. Sift together the flour, powder, soda and salt, and beat them into the mixture at low speed until combined, then at medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips, turn into a greased Bundt pan, and bake at 350F for 45 to 55 minutes. Cool, then frost with vanilla frosting. Sprinkle with more chocolate chips and chopped walnuts, if desired.

Yes, this was just as moist and rich as this picture implies!

this looks perfect for me - I like vanilla cake way more than chocolate cake and this is a little of both.

I think that could become a favorite for Rob.

Sour cream makes such luscious cake.

Next time I'm up at the Folks' place I'll locate cousin Annabelle's citrus sour cream cake recipe.

(Annabelle is a professional foodie with published books and all. Her modern 2 bedroom home has 3 ovens for recipe testing - 2 in the kitchen and 1 in the laundry!)

Hi,

Thanks for popping over to my corner of the blogosphere. Your snow scene at the top of your blog could easily apply to most of northern Europe at the moment.

Mmmm, that cake looks good!
