Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

Ok. The picture doesn't really do it justice. Our family has been making this cake forEVER. Mom made it plenty while we were growing up, for church potlucks & stuff like that. I have made it several times while we've been married, so i think it deserves a blog entry! Seriously- it is DELICIOUS!!! It won 1st place at last years family reunion (they have everyone vote on best dessert). And it's SUPER easy to make!!


Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

1 box yellow cake mix (we use Duncan Hines)
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
pecans, chopped (optional - i've never made it with pecans, but i'm sure it's good!)
1 box instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sour cream
6 oz. semisweet chocolate chips

Mix ingredients well. Stir in chips last. Pour into bundt pan sprayed with Pam or buttered. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. After cooling for 10 minutes, flip over onto plate. It should come out super easily (mine always does!). Allow to cool & sprinkle with powdered sugar. And, speaking of sprinkling with sugar... I feel i should mention a very handy, very favorite product of mine!!! It's a flour/sugar shaker!

Isn't it cute?! Seriously, my sister-in-law had one of these & i remember ooh-ing & ah-ing over it while Brad & I were engaged. It is just so handy & so cute!! And when i made this cake for the family reunion in October 2008, i borrowed hers! So, for one of my shower gifts (i think), she gave me one of my very own! It is a Pampered Chef product & it is just the best thing ever! & they're only $6! So worth it, i think!! Love it!
