  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

  • In a large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla. Beat in flour mixture alternately with sour cream, beating on low after each addition just until moistened. Fold in 1 cup chocolate chips. Divide into prepared molds.

  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Remove and cool in a pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from molds. Cool completely.

  • In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the remaining baking chips with 3 tablespoons butter until smooth and glossy. Cool slightly and spoon over cooled cakes. Sprinkle with mini baking chips.

  • Top cakes with your favorite Ghirardelli Bunnies or Eggs.

Test Kitchen Tips:

If you don't have mini Bundt molds, coat fifteen 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray. Fill each cup two-thirds full. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Cool 2 minutes in cups; remove and cool completely. Glaze as above.

For easy glazing, transfer cooled glaze mixture to a zip-top bag. Seal and snip one corner of the bag. Glaze as above.

I followed the recipe exactly except for the topping. I didn t have mini chocolate chips but since it was Halloween I crushed two Butterfinger minis and sprinkled them on top. My husband loved them and said I m not allowed to share with anyone else:). Read More

Very disappointed. Made the recipe for a dinner party and it was dry and kind of flavorless. A cross between a cake and a cookie but not as good as either. I would not recommend this one. Read More

I picked this recipe because Gheradelli is the chocolate I usually use for baking or for a treat.. I made 18 little bundt cakes with this recipe for my daughter's community service group and it was a hit.But I had an issue with both the batter and the glaze they were too thick! I had hard time filling the mini bundt pan. I had to use a spoon to spread the batter in the bottom of the pan. For the glaze I had to thin it out with 2 tablespoons of hot milk. Next time I will use extra large eggs or reduce the flour little bit.But for glazing I will use my usual ganache.. Read More

Very easy and cute little cakes to make for Easter. I know the grands will love them. Personally I prefer the taste of real icing drizzle as opposed to melted chocolate chips. Read More

This didn't work at all. I don't know what I did wrong but I ended up with cookie dough! I followed the recipe exactly. I realized that there was only vanilla and eggs as the liquids nothing else. I added about 1/2 cup of milk and it got more liquidy but stayed the same flavor. In the oven right now hope it works. Read More

Made with milk choc chips since I had a bunch already. I m sure semi-sweet would have been delicious. Easy to pull together and I d recommend microwaving for 30 seconds just before serving as the cakes can seem a little dry otherwise Read More
