Double-Chocolate Honey Ring

  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1 C honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 C flour
  • 1/2 C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 C sour cream
  • 1 C chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C chopped walnuts

Cream butter in large bowl with electric mixer.  Gradually add honey, beating until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.  Mixture may appear slightly curdled.  Beat in vanilla.  Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and baking soda in small bowl.  Add dry ingredients alternately with sour cream to butter mixture.  Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.  Pour batter into a greased 12 cup fluted tube pan.  Bake at 325 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.  Cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes.  Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.  Glaze with White Chocolate Glaze.  (We simply bake it for 35 minutes in a 13″ x 9″ pan and serve without frosting.  This is a dry cake that we enjoy like brownies.)

Optional White Chocolate Glaze:

  • 2 oz. white chocolate
  • 2 t milk

Melt white chocolate in top of double boiler.  Stir in milk.  Drizzle glaze with spoon sparingly over cake, allowing it to drip down the sides.  May sprinkle additional unsweetened cocoa powder over the top  for an added touch.
