- Grease a 8 cup fluted tube pan. (I use a regular bundt pan).
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Add sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture just until combined.
- Stir in the chocolate chips and pour into prepared pan.
- For the topping: Combine the flour, sugar, and cocoa; cut into the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the pecans and chocolate chips. Sprinkle into batter.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center. Cool in pan for 20 minutes (make sure you do this or the cake will come out in pieces) Then trransfer to a wire rack until completely cooled.
