Chocolate Chip Pound cake, mmmmmm ~ just the name makes my mouth water! I just love rich, moist, chocolaty desserts! This one was passed-on to me from a friend in Australia some years back, and it quickly became a family favorite. Do you remember me telling you that even my food needs to be able to adapt in my house? (Chicken Orzo Salad post) Well this is one of those highly versatile recipes that will thrive with whatever your imagination can come up, and hopefully use things you already have stored in your pantry.
I do realize that cakes from scratch are best, but there are moments when time is of the essence and something quick is in order. So here is a quick, easy, and Dee-licious cake recipe for you to try the next time you need a dessert and time is a premium. I usually like to do it the night before simply because it should cool completely in the pan before you take it out.
Enjoy it immensely! I will give you some of the variations on it that I have used at the end of this post. Bon Appetite!
- 1 box of Super Moist yellow cake (with pudding in the mix)
- 1 box instant chocolate pudding mix (the small one)
- 1 small (8oz) container of sour cream (I use daisy)
- ¾ cup of water
- ¾ cup of oil (canola?)
- ½ cup sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tsp or so of vanilla
- ½ bag (6oz) chocolate chips
~Dump everything in a large bowl all at the same time and mix well. Pour into a greased and floured 2 piece bunt cake pan (for easy removal) and cook 1 hour at 350 degrees – that’s it! The cake is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. It is sooooo amazingly easy! - and really good too. I’m not usually a big proponent of processed foods, but there are just those times when it is necessary. Let the cake cool completely in the pan and when it is cold turn onto a plate. Wallah! moist rich wonderfully chocolaty pound cake!
and you don’t even have to use icing…..it is good all by itself!
Here are some of the variations that I have tried and liked:
- Cherry Chip cake, White Chocolate pudding, with fresh firm raspberries folded in
- White cake and vanilla pudding with fresh blueberries
- Chocolate cake and white chocolate pudding with peanut butter chips
- Banana cake and vanilla pudding with chopped walnuts
I even tried once to make them as cupcakes – it wasn’t successful. Just sayin’!
Enjoy creating your own combinations! Let us know what you made ~ We would love to hear about it!
Soli Deo Gloria!
