  • 3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Cup Sugar

Icing for Bundt Cake

  • cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons Milk
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract can substitute almond extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Grease and flour a 9 or 10 cup bundt cake pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together until well mixed. In a separate bowl, combine the sour cream and eggs and whisk to break up the eggs, then add the melted butter and whisk again.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the sour cream mixture and fold with a rubber spatula until almost completely mixed, then carefully fold in the chocolate chips until mixed completely, then scrape cake batter into the prepared bundt cake pan and spread evenly.  (Note: The batter will be stiff)
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Once baked, remove from the oven and let the cake cool for about 5 minutes, then put a plate or serving dish on the top of the bundt cake pan and flip the cake onto the serving plate.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the cake and let it set up before slicing to serve with a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries. Enjoy!
