Sour Cream Choc Chip Cake

Cassie *


Deliciously moist!

Every time I make this cake, it's a big hit.

The sour cream makes this cake delectable..Another bonus to this cake is you need no frosting..the chocolate chips more than make up for it..

I found this recipe about 5 years ago on family and friends have enjoyed it ever since..

I changed a few things to our liking. One, I use milk chocolate chips along with semisweet chips.

This cake will make your home smell divine while baking..
