For the cake:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted butter (room temperature)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

For the filling:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 6 ounces chocolate chips

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-5 tablespoons heavy cream


Make the cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350ยบ Fahrenheit.
  • Grease a bundt cake pan with shortening, then dust with flour. (Or use cake release.)
  • In a large bowl, cream the sugar and butter together until well mixed. (We use a hand mixer for this.)
  • Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix again.
  • Mix in the sour cream.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix until well blended.
  • Spoon half of the batter into the prepared bundt cake pan.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the filling ingredients. Sprinkle over the batter in the cake pan.
  • Dollop the remaining batter on top and spread gently to cover the entire top.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until the cake tests done.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then loosen the edges and turn out onto a plate to cool completely.

Make the glaze:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla and 3 tablespoons of cream. If the glaze is too thick, add another tablespoon or two of glaze until you reach a good drizzling consistency.
  • After the cake has cooled, drizzle the glaze on top.
  • Sprinkle with additional chocolate chips if desired.
