Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Cake

So I haven't been baking much lately. Trying to lose the baby weight (10 more lbs to go to pre Jensen! then 10 more lbs to go to pre Jakah!)

And its been hot out, so I haven't wanted to turn on the oven. But I had some buttermilk left over after making my mom the Berry Buttermilk Cake for her birthday.

I couldn't really find a recipe I wanted to try, so I decided to use the base from the Berry Buttermilk Cake and add some chocolate chips in. Casey doesn't really like berries (weirdo!) so I figured he would like this.

Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Cake
2 1/2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup softened butter
1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1 package (11.5 oz) chocolate chips I used Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips, my favorite!

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

Grease Bundt Pan (PS looking thru my pictures I noticed I make a lot of Bundt cakes....hmmm)

In a bowl mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside

In the mixer, cream together butter and sugar for about 5 minutes.

At a low speed, add in eggs, one at a time. Add in vanilla and mix completely.

Add in 1/3 of the flour mixture to the batter, mixing until combined. Mix in 1/2 of the buttermilk.

Continue until all the flour and buttermilk are mixed in.

Add chocolate chips and mix.

Add batter to pan and bake for 50 - 60 minutes. Or until a toothpick comes out clean

This cake was yummy! It tasted like a big muffin :) That you got to put whip cream on! I should have made a chocolate glaze to go over the top. But I didn't have the ingredients and I'm lazy.

And apparently I didn't grease my pan well enough...I guess that's what happens when baking with a 2 year old! 

But it still tasted good!

Did I mention I was baking with a 2 year old! Who likes to taste the batter each and every time I stop the mixer to add something else!?

Good thing he's cute!
