The most requested cake of all time in my family. The recipe started out almost unbearably indulgent, (2 sticks of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 1 and 1/2 cups of sour cream) but we've managed to make some healthier additions over time. —Olivia

What You'll Need
  • Sugar, Cinnamon, Brown Sugar, Chopped nuts (usually walnuts but feel free to use whatever you'd like)
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Chopped Nuts
  • Butter, Sugar, Eggs, Vanilla, Yogurt, Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt, Chocolate Chips
  • 12 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Yogurt
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 6-9 ounces Chocolate Chips
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a bundt pan well. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, brown sugar, and chopped nuts. Mix well and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla, and yogurt. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together. Slowly mix the dry and wet ingredients. Add chocolate chips and mix until combined.
  3. Pour a small amount of nut mixture into the bottom of the greased pan. Add 1/2 batter and cover generously with nut mixture. Add the rest of the batter and cover with remaining nut mixture. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Watch fairly closely for the last 10 minutes to make sure the top doesn't brown too much.

Making this as we speak. The batter is quite thick, is that suppost to be like that? I also dusted the bundt pan with cocoa powder, lets see how it turns out! :)
