Chocolate Chip Poundcake

This is my twist on a great recipe.


3/4 cup chocolate chips

2 cups butter, softened
2 3/4 cups sugar
6 large eggs
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg or cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract


Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes or until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating 5 to 7 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until yellow disappears. Combine flour, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl; add to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix at low speed after each addition just until mixture is blended. Stir in vanilla and chocolate chips. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 to 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 to 15 minutes; remove from pan, and cool completely on wire rack.
