Instructions

  • Preheat Oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Grease a Bundt Pan with some spray stuff or butter
  • In a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy…. 5 or minutes.

  • Add Eggs, one at a time…beating and scraping between each egg.
  • Scrape often, and make sure each egg is completely incorporated before adding another.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda in a larger measuring cup.
  • Alternate adding flour mixture and sour cream into the butter mixture, beat at low speed all the while, until the ingredients are just combined.
  • Now…..
  • Take half of the batter, and spread it into the bottom of the prepared bundt pan. Set aside.
  • To the rest of the batter, add the cocoa powder and the milk. Beat until completely combined.
  • Spread the chocolate batter over the vanilla batter.
  • Using a knife, swirl the two flavors together by scooping in and up and over….. sort of like folding. Don’t go bananas and make it a total mix, just swirl them a bit.
  • Put in the oven and bake for 1 hour 20 minutes.

Icing:
  • Stir or whisk all icing ingredients until combined. If it’s thick…add more milk… if it’s thin… add more sugar.
