    Chocolate sponge, Chocolate Chips and Chocolate Glaze - will fix any chocolate craving!

    Ingredients

    • For the sponge
    • 2 sticks of unsalted butter (room temperature)
    • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
    • 4 eggs (room temperature)
    • 3/4 cup of sour cream (room temperature)
    • 1/4 cup of coffee
    • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
    • 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup of cocoa powder (I use Hershey's)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
    • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (tossed in 1 tablespoon of all purpose flour)
    • For the glaze
    • 1 cup of heavy cream
    • 1 cup of chocolate chips

    Directions

    1. Heat the oven to 350F
    2. Grease and flour a 10 cup bundt pan.
    3. Beat the butter and sugar until really light and fluffy.
    4. Add the eggs one at a time. Scrape down the bowl after each addition.
    5. Mix together the sour cream, coffee and vanilla extract.
    6. In another bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, soda and salt.
    7. In another bowl toss the chocolate chips in a tablespoon of flour and set aside.
    8. Add half the flour mixture to the sugar and egg mixture. Combine gently.
    9. Add the sour cream mixture and gently beat until just combined.
    10. Add the remainder of the flour mixture and fold in.
    11. Add the chocolate chips and gently fold in.
    12. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 50 - 1 hour. The cake is cooked when a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
    13. Cool in the the pan for 5 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool thoroughly.
    14. To make the glaze, combine the chocolate chips and the cream in a saucepan over a medium/low heat.
    15. Stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is a smooth velvety consistency.
    16. Place a large plate under the cake and pour the glaze over the cake.
    17. Let set and serve.
