Chocolate-Filled Chocolate Chip Pound Cake, a moist & rich pound cake that’s studded and filled with chocolate chips! Yum! 


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 3 cups mini chocolate chips, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly grease and flour a ring-shaped cake pan.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in the sour cream. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until well combined. Then beat in the vanilla and almond extracts. Add the flour and beat on low speed until just combined. Stir in 1-1/2 cups of the mini chocolate chips.
  3. Spread half of the batter evenly into the prepared cake pan. Sprinkle evenly with the remaining chocolate chips. Spread the other half of the batter evenly over the chocolate chips.
  4. Place the cake pan on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If the top of the cake starts to brown too much, place a sheet of parchment paper over the top of the cake until it is done baking.
  5. Let cool in pan for 15 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack or cake plate. Enjoy!
