Sour Cream Choc Chip Cake

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..

How to Make Sour Cream Choc Chip Cake


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Prepare a 13 x 9 baking pan with cooking spray.
  • 2In a large bowl, cream butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar, then mix in the egg yolks, sour cream, and vanilla.
  • 3In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir into the butter mixture.
  • 4Beat the egg whites until they hold stiff peaks, then fold into the batter.
  • 5In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon with the 1/2 c. of sugar.
  • 6Pour half the cake batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with half the chocolate chips and half the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • 7Pour the remaining cake batter on top and spread evenly. Top with more chocolate chips and the rest of the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • 8Bake 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • 9** The batter will be very thick. So, don't be alarmed. I use a frosting spreader to smooth out the batter evenly.
