Chocolate chip pound cake with Chocolate glaze


This cake is delicious moist chocolate cake with a glossy chocolate glaze. This is prepared by beating butter with sugar until fluffy stirring with eggs and flour.

We can serve this cake plain or with chocolate glaze or fruit jam either way it is delicious. . It really turned out beautifully. I love the crispy crust formed around this pound cake. Dotted with chips and topped with a chocolate glaze, it is absolutely divine.

Here is the recipe of this soft and lip-smacking chocolate pound cake.

Ingredients:

All purpose flour – 2 cups
Butter – ½ cup
Eggs – 2 no
Vanilla extract – ½ tsp
Baking powder – 2 tsp
Baking soda – ½ tsp
Semisweet chocolate chips – ¾ cup
Sour cream – 1 cup or 8 ounces



Chocolate Glaze

Semisweet chocolate chips – ¼ cup
Butter – 2 tsps
Whole Milk – ½ cup
Vanilla extract – ½ tsp

Preparation

  • In a bowl mix butter and sugar until soft and fluffy.
  • Add eggs beating well after each addition.
  • Add vanilla extract, baking powder and baking soda and mix well.
  • Combine all purpose flour and add sour cream and beat well.
  • Add chocolate chips and mix well.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • Pour the mixture into a greased round cake pan.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 mins before removing from cake pan
  • For chocolate glaze in a microwave safe bowl add chocolate chips, butter, whole milk and vanilla extract and heat for 2 mins.
  • Stir well until smooth in between.
