One of the things I love most about a pound cake is the thought that goes into it beforehand. Going through the motions of setting out the eggs and butter long before it’s time to bake so they can come to room temperature, greasing and flouring an old, trusty bundt pan, and measuring out all the other ingredients… and then, after everything’s been sifted and mixed, the heavenly smell that fills the whole house while it’s baking… it’s such a sweet reminder that sometimes – maybe even, most of the time – good things just take a little time. Clinging to His reminders to bloom where I’m planted and trust the process, today 🌿
- 12 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease and flour pan.
- To a stand mixer, add the butter and sugar with the paddle attachment and cream together until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add in the vanilla, eggs, and milk until fully combined.
- Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined then fold in most of the chocolate chips (reserve a handful), pour into the loaf pan and sprinkle over the remaining chips and bake for 55-60 minutes.
This recipe is so simple and so good! Just don’t forget a tip my Mama taught me- toss your chocolate chips in flour so they don’t all sink to the bottom while it’s baking!
