  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 10-inch tube pan.
  2. Beat butter and cream cheese together in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy; add sugar and mix well. Beat eggs, 1 at a time, into butter mixture, mixing well after each addition. Gradually mix flour, milk, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt into butter mixture until batter comes together; fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I make this cake for my husband and 5 kids to put in their lunches. I use a Wilton® long loaf pan. When cooled I cut the cake into 1-inch slices and put in Ziploc® sandwich bags then the freezer. In the morning I put a slice in everyone's lunch bag and by noon they are perfect to eat and it helped keep their lunch cold.
  • I also use different extracts like coconut, almond, and peanut butter to switch it up. Mini chips work best as larger chips tend to sink.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
