Chocolate Chip Pound Cake
Can you say "pound-cake"?
Now can you say "Chocolate-Chip Pound-Cake"? (Question: Is pound-cake hypenated?)
I made this the other day for a party. This recipe is a killer. It is SO good.
Chocolate Chip Poundcake
from The Moosewood Cookbook
1 pound buter, at room temperature
3 cups white sugar
6 eggs, at room temperature
1 cup milk
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon baking powder
4 cups unbleached white flour
2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
Grease and flour four small loaf pans, or a full sized bundt or tube pan.
Cream together butter and sugar with an electric mixer at high speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, on at a time, beating well after each. Remove from electric mixer.
Sift together dry ingredients. Mix together milk and vanilla extract. Add dry and wet to butter mixture alternately, beginning and ending with dry. Add chocolate chips. Mix by hand, using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, after each addition. Mix thoroughly, just enough to blend, without excess beating.
Pour into loaf or bundt or tube pan. Bake 1 hour, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out dry. After the cake cools ten minutes, turn it out onto a plate. Let cool completely before slicing.
