This Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake is seriously the BEST. Homemade buttermilk pound cake loaded with pecans and chocolate chips. Top the cake with some vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce and prepare to be wowed! This cake is great for parties, potlucks, or Tuesday. It is very easy to make and even easier to eat.

How to Make Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake From Scratch

As I said, this Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake is very easy to make. Start by sprinkling some chopped pecans, sugar, and melted butter in the bottom of a bundt cake pan. Next, make the cake batter. Mix together butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs to the butter mixture, making sure to mix well after each one. Next, add flour, baking soda, and salt to the batter alternating with buttermilk. Finally, stir in mini chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the bundt cake pan and bake. Let the cake sit in the cake pan for 10 to 15 minutes before removing the cake from the pan and cooling completely on a wire rack. Allowing the cake to rest in the pan for a few minutes after baking will help make sure the cake comes out of the pan easily.

Tips for Making Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

  • Have all ingredients at room temperature before baking including eggs and buttermilk.
  • Spray Bundt pan with baking spray that contains flour. I like Baker’s Joy or Pam.
  • Can add toffee bits to the cake batter.
  • Can top the cake with a quick glaze made from powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla.
  • Store cake in an air-tight container. 
  • The cake will keep approximately 2 to 3 days at room temperature on the counter and 5 to 7 days in the refrigerator.
  • Can freeze the baked cake for later. You can freeze the cake whole or in individual slices. The cake will keep for about 6 months in the freezer.
