From Everybody Likes Sandwiches, with a lovely family story to go with it. This is a quick basic cake, with something special from the taste of the vanilla sugar. I doubled the number of chocolate chips, but otherwise left it alone.
1 c butter
1 c sugar
1 6-gram pack Oetker vanilla sugar (or 1 t of vanilla extract) [I found this vanilla sugar in the baking aisle, with the frosting and sprinkles]
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 c corn starch
1 T baking powder
scant 1/2 c milk
1 package of chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a bundt pan.
Cream butter, gradually add sugar, the vanilla sugar and eggs.
mixture of sieved flour [I never sieve], corn starch and baking powder alternately with
the milk. Mixture should be firm; don’t add too much milk. [I probably only used about 1/4 c.]
Stir in half the chocolate chips and pour/scoop batter into the pan. Sprinkle the other half of the chocolate chips on the top and press in lightly.
50 minutes. When cool, dust with icing sugar.
