Plum & Chocolate Sour Cream Pound Cake

Makes 1 loaf cake
Total Time
1 Hour 15 Minutes
250g sugar
142g butter, softened
1/4 tsp salt
3 eggs
215g flour
140g sour cream
4 prune plums, finely chopped
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp flour
Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease and flour a loaf pan.

Step 2

Place sugar, butter, and salt into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on high speed for 4 full minutes, until light and fluffy with no graininess left. Add in the eggs one at a time, mixing for 30 seconds between each one to ensure they are incorporated fully. Add in the flour in four portions and the sour cream in three; begin with the flour and alternate mixing the dry and wet.

Step 3

Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix on low for 30 seconds to ensure homogeneity.

Step 4

Toss the chopped plums and chocolate chips with a tablespoon of flour, then gently fold into the batter.

Step 5

Spread batter into prepared pan; bake for 45 minutes to an hour, or until a tester inserted into the center comes out mostly clean and the inside registers 200 degrees F.
