Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Cake
There’s only one way to describe this cake, CRAZY GOOD! The cake baked for 35 minutes, it was gone in less time than it took to bake it. When the baking time was up and I got my first peek at the golden brown top, my first thoughts were…Oh man look at that.
I let it cool a whole ten minutes, then I couldn’t stand it anymore and had to taste it. Oh good grief it was good! Soft, moist ,tender , the cinnamon sugar and milk chocolate chips, it was perfect in ever way imaginable.
I cut pieces of it to share with some of my neighbors that were outside enjoying the first nice day we’ve had here since October. Their reactions were all the same, this cake is INCREDIBLE! This isn’t just a keeper, it’s a… make 20 copies of the recipe so you never loose it kind of keeper.
You’ve been warned, bake at your own risk and bask in the deliciousness of this incredible Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Cake! Enjoy!

Hi, this cake sounds delicious. Is it possible to make it in a bundt pan instead? If so, do I need to alter anything? Thanks!
Talia this is a very thin cake and wouldn’t do well in a bundt pan.
