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 1 cup 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 remaining chocolate chips and heavy cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until melted and combined. Cool slightly then slowly pour over cake. Let glaze set.
  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.
