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
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!
Good thing he's cute!
