Chocolate Sourcream Pound Cake

Chocolate Sourcream Pound Cake is a classic recipe that is sure to please the whole family. This cake is made with a rich and creamy chocolate sour cream batter and topped off with an irresistible chocolate glaze.

This decadent dessert starts by combining butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract in a large bowl and mixing until combined. Next, the dry ingredients are added - all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt - stirring until blended together. To finish up the batter you will fold in the sour cream and melted chocolate chips until everything is fully incorporated.
