My all-time favourite childhood cake has to be Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake!
My mother’s Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake took it to the next level for me…the addition of chocolate!
Of all the desserts my mother could make…this one ‘took the cake!’ Both my brother and I would request this cake when we visited during our University days.
It quickly became Matthew’s favourite cake! I would make it for parties and let him sample a piece…unfortunately, Michael was unable to try it due to his dairy and egg allergies. This limited my desire to make the cake…I haven’t made it in years.
Matthew is always begging me to adapt this recipe so that we all might enjoy this classic childhood favourite of his and mine, yet again. Now that allergen free products are on the market, I am able to resurrect this ‘diva’ of a cake!
I present to you my adapted recipe….Dairy, Egg, and Peanut/Tree Nut Free ‘Sour Cream’ Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake in all it’s glory!
Dairy, Egg, and Peanut/Tree Nut Free ‘Sour Cream’ Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake
1/2 cup Earth Balance at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp water
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
1 container of a 340g tub of Tofutti Sour Supreme.
1 /12 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips
Grease a 8 1/2 inch Bundt pan with Earth Balance and dust with flour.
In a large bowl, cream Earth Balance.
Add sugar and cream until very smooth. Very important to cream the Earth Balance and sugar together well, until lightened.
Add vanilla and water and stir until well combined.
In another bowl, combine the flour and baking soda.
Stir the dry into the creamed mixture until combined.
Add in the Enjoy Life chocolate chips and stir.
The mixture is quite thick so dollop the batter, carefully, into the greased and floured bundt pan. Smooth the top.
P.S. Michael had a friend over and we all enjoyed a piece or two while still warm…though, not warm enough to melt the icing sugar on top.
Oh my…moist, dense, chocolatey… yummy! Just how I remember it!
Tip: Michael has discovered warming his piece up in the microwave to give it that just baked taste!
