Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

High Altitude Pound Cake Recipes

Hi everyone!

I’m a bit behind on my blogging schedule, mainly because I’ve had some exciting things happen in the last couple of months! First- I finished all the content for my upcoming book and turned everything into my publisher. Super exciting/terrifying to have sent it all off! I’m also really excited to share these pretty promo cards they made for Sugar High:

Second bit of a news is a fun one. I’m so excited to say that my husband and I are expecting our first child! I’ve nicknamed the little lime-sized baby “Muffin” for now. Life is wild.

Onto this pretty pound cake! Since the holiday season is officially upon us, it’s time to think about sweet treats that travel well, and please crowds. This chocolate chip pound cake is perfect for any such an occasion.

I love pound cake because it stands alone- you don’t need to make frosting or cream or anything to go with it, although if you’re feeling up to whipped cream, go for it. It’s just lightly sweet, very dense, and provides us with a perfect little snack anytime. Or a breakfast. Yes, I eat cake for breakfast, it’s fine.

This is a classic recipe, and you can find my bundt cake version over here. I’ve made this one in the form of a single loaf- a bit less cake overall, and the addition of chocolate chips gives it just the right twist.

You can actually alter this recipe in so many yummy ways. For example, top it with sliced fruit before baking, or fill it with berries, or lemon zest and juice. Whichever way you make it, it’s still going to have that perfect tightly-knit crumb that you’ll keep coming back to.

I hope you’re starting off your holiday season brightly this year! Personally, I’m one of those Christmas fanatics that starts listening to Christmas music on November 1st, and shopping later that day. However you prefer it though, treat yoself with something sweet all season!

    My husband and I were joking about how every time we cook something from the internet it never looks like the picture of the recipe. Well, I just made your chocolate chip pound cake and it looks EXACTLY like the picture. Beautiful, looks delicious. Can’t wait til it cools…..

            Are there any modifications that I should make to the recipe since I do not live in a high altitude area? I am in North Carolina. Thanks!!

    Hi Susan- I would decrease the flour by 2-3 tbs, and increase the leavening by 1/4 tsp. That's just a guess though as all my recipes are developed at high-altitude. 🙂

      Hi Brenda! Gotcha, I usually find that in dryer cakes, if I'm wanting a bit more moisture in it, I can add a couple of tablespoons of sour cream to the batter and it gives it just enough!
