Nana’s Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Cake

    55 minutes

    A friend sent this to me, its her family recipes, and i agree with her comment about cooking it longer. I ended up baking it for 40 mins because it was still gooey in the middle, so keep an eye on it!

    2. Spoon 1/2 batter into greased and floured 23x33cm tin.

    4. Sprinkle half of this sugar, cinnamon, choc chip mixture over batter.

    We just moved to the UK and I was having trouble converting my own recipes. I didn't have/know about caster sugar so just used regular granulated sugar and it was great. My husband needed a cake to take to work and this was perfect! His co-workers asked if I could make it again the next day, so it was a big hit!
