Chocolate Chip Swirl Bundt Cake

Chocolate Chip Swirl Bundt Cake
If you don’t have anything planned for Friday yet, put this cake on the menu.  Valentine’s Day isn’t about a fancy or more aptly, expensive, dinner out with candlelight.  It’s about remembering the people that you love and WHY you love them.  I know John loves me without having to take me out to dinner with 10000 other people.  I’m content to snuggle up next to him on the couch and have a piece of cake, or 2.  But that’s just me.

Chocolate Chip Swirl Bundt Cake (adapted from Is This Really My Life?)
Serves:  12 (1 large bundt)
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
8 ounces cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
4-6 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease and lightly flour the bundt pan and set aside.  Combine milk and lemon juice in a large bowl; let stand for 3 minutes.  Then, add vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla extract and white vinegar.  Mix well.  Beat in flour, sugar, and baking soda until just combined.  Stir in mini chocolate chips.  Separate the batter into 2 bowls.  Leave 1 bowl alone.  In the other bowl, add red food coloring and cocoa powder.  Mix well.  Drop tablespoons full of dough into the bundt pan, alternating colors.  Gently swirl with a knife.

Bake 40-50 minutes, until a toothpick, inserted into the center, comes out clean.

Meanwhile, make the frosting:  Beat cream cheese and sugar until well-combined.  Add milk, a tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.  Spread over the slightly warm cake and let the frosting set.

Serve at room temperature or store in an airtight container up to 3 days in the fridge.

Until the next time my oven is on…
