Death By Chocolate V
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
5/8 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
confectioners’ sugar for dusting
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa. Set aside.
2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the sour cream, water and vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture just until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan.
3 Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. When cake is cool, sift confectioners’ sugar over the top.
