Chocolate Orange Sour Cream Pound Cake

At Christmas time we were always thrilled if we received a chocolate orange. If you coarsely chop one up and add it to this tender, buttery cake you end up with a cake that will be just as well received as a chocolate orange. You can marbleize this cake or leave it as a vanilla-orange batter, with the Chocolate Orange pieces, dotted throughout the cake. Not as heavy as a pound cake, but moist and delicious. I highly recommend.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • Generously grease a 9 inch tube pan or bundt cake pan or two 8 by 4 inch, or two 9 by 5 inch loaf pans with non stick cooking spray.
  • Melt the chocolate and set aside.
  • Cream the butter and the sugar until fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs, sour cream, orange zest and extracts , blending well.
  • Fold in the dry ingredients, scraping the bottom of the bowl to make sure it is all blended.
  • Stir in the milk, and then fold in the chocolate.
  • Remove 1/2 up of the batter and mix with the melted chocolate.
  • Spoon white batter into pan and then drop spoonfuls of the chocolate batter on top of that. Swirl briefly with a knife to marbleize.
  • Bake until cake springs back when lightly touched with fingertips, about 45-65 minutes (depending on pans used).
  • Dust with confectioners’ sugar or drizzle on melted white and dark chocolate or melted milk chocolate.
  • Alternatively, you can glaze with an orange juice and confectioner’s sugar glaze.
