Well, today is my birthday, and I am turning the big FOUR-OH! I can’t believe it, 40! I am honestly fine with hitting middle age and part of me (okay, the hypochondriac hidden deep inside, LOL) is even thinking … “Wow, I made it to forty.” I’m honestly just super glad to be here and feeling good enough to still be able to do all the things I want to do in life. Now, talk to me in few years, and I might not be as thrilled about turning 42 or 43. But for now, life is good, and I am ready to celebrate!
So, what better way to ring in another decade than with a super scrumptious homemade Chocolate Chip Bundt cake (that’s most definitely a “treat” given all the sugar)? There is just something special about bundt cakes in my opinion. And this is one for all those chocolate chip cookie lovers out there – just like me.
And I have to give a special thanks to Megan Lambert with Johnson & Wales for helping me figure out how to tweak the ingredients in this cake recipe until it popped out of the bundt cake pan just right. I made a few versions first that kept sticking to the pan before I reached out to the “Pastry Chef Consultant,” as I like to call her, LOL, for help! For a fun little dessert, make this Chocolate Chip Mug Cake!

Hope you had the best birthday!!!! Your cake looks so delicious in those pictures!!! Thanks for sharing:)
I followed the recipe as is, except I poured the batter into two muffin pans using silicone liners and baked for about 15 minutes. We served each cupcake with a scoop of ice cream instead of whipped cream. They. Were. Amazing!
Happy Birthday !!
Something about being in the big 40’s . You have a different view on things . More relaxed when things hit the fan of life. There this clarity in knowing you have been blessed to come this far . Life’s battle scars and all, you are beautiful .

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LISA!!! Thanks for being so great and helping people eat real food.
Do you think I can use regular whole wheat flour? If not, then where can you find whole wheat pastry flour?
Hi. The texture is far better with pastry flour. Most larger grocery stores should carry it or often will when requested but you can defintely find it at stores like Whole Foods, Earth Fare, Sprouts, Fresh Market, etc.
Very yummy and delicious…
How does your family do lunch in the summer?
