Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cake…a.k.a. Heaven in a pan

It’s been awhile. I don’t feel happy about that fact and I’ve sat down many times in the last few months to post an amazing recipe. Life with an almost 4 year old and an 11 month old is BUSY! I’m cooking lots and experimenting so much, but it seems like I haven’t been able to document as I go or find the time to write up and post recipes.
But it’s a new year, and I’m going to make a better effort. I promise!
Today I made one of my favourite cake recipes. It pretty much takes 5-10 minutes to mix up, and 45 to bake. It is easy. It is delicious. It is good to bring to a friend who is sick, or had a baby, or went back to work. You’ll make this often. I know I do. I didn’t take pictures of the process today, but it’s pretty straight forward. I think you will enjoy it.


Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cake
1/2 c.softened butter
1 c. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. sour cream
2 tbsp. milk
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1package of chocolate chips
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. sugar

Grease a square baking pan (I have a nice ceramic one I like to use). In a medium bowl cream together the sugar and butter, and then add eggs until the mixture is light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, combine the sour cream and milk and set aside. Sift together, the flour, baking soda, and baking powder and add alternately with the sour cream mixture, to the butter mixture, until well blended. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan (it will be thick, you’ll have to use a spatula to spread it to the edges). Combine the cinnamon and ½ c. sugar and sprinkle the mixture over the batter. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes. Cool before serving (this is a favourite in our house and we often cut into it while still warm).

Fresh out of the oven.  Yum!
