This is one of my family’s favorites. It has been a birthday cake requests for years from all my family members. My grandma taught me how to make this and I’ll never forget all the sweet memories we shared while baking. Grandma’s recipes are the real deal ya’ll.
Since I am a visual person here is a picture of what you’ll need and then I will list all the items for you.
Prep Time: 10-20 mins
Cook Time: 50-55 mins
Total Time: 2 – 2 1/2 hrs
What you need:
- Bundt pan
- 3 eggs
- 2/3 cup of vegetable oil
- 1/3 cup sugar (I use Sugar in the Raw)
- Duncan Hines Butter Golden cake mix
- 1 bag Tollhouse Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 8 ounces sour cream (I use the Daisy brand)
- Confectioners Sugar (for top of cake)
- 1 Teaspoon vanilla
1). Mix together cake mix, oil, sugar, and sour cream. (Go ahead and preheat oven to 325)
2). Beat in one egg at a time (total of 3 eggs). Add vanilla. Beat 4 mins. (You can use kitchen aid or a hand mixer, honestly a spoon is fine too).
3). Stir in chocolate chips (This is where you put the love into it..wink wink).
4). Grease bundt pan (butter or pam is fine) thoroughly. It will stick really bad and your bundt cake won’t look pretty if you don’t.
5). Disperse cake mix in bundt pan evenly or it will cook unevenly (and once again it won’t look pretty).
6). Bake for 50-55 mins. I usually put 50 on the timer and check every 2 mins after that. The top should be golden brown. Its ok if the knife isn’t totally clean. I prefer my cake SUPER moist (hate that word but its true) so the knife isn’t always clean when I pull it out after I test it.
7). You HAVE to let the cake cool for 30 minutes to one hour. If you flip it to early it will fall apart.
This is easy to make, but baking and cooling time are what take the longest.
To flip the cake, place a plate on the top side of the bundt pan and flip. Let the pan sit upside down for a little while before removing it. Sometimes I have to hit the top of the bundt pan for it to fall out!
When its cool, sprinkle some confectioners sugar on top to make it look pretty (if desired).
