How to Make Chocolate Lover's Pound Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Sift together cake and pudding mixes into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Make a well in the center and add eggs, 2 sticks melted butter, sour cream, coffee, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  3. Beat on low speed until blended then increase speed to medium-high and beat for 4 minutes.
  4. Stir in 2 cups chocolate chips.
  5. Pour batter into well greased 12-cup bundt or tube pan and bake at 325 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until cake springs back when touched.
  6. Cool cake in pan for 10 minutes then turn out onto wire rack to cool completely.
  7. For glaze, combine 3 tablespoons softened butter, remaining 3/4 cup chocolate chips, and corn syrup in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly until chocolate and butter are melted. Remove from heat and stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. Spread over cooled cake.
  8. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
  9. Suggestion: Tossing chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour before adding to cake batter will prevent them from sinking to bottom of pan during baking.
