  • Before anything else, preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, grease and line the cake pan with parchment paper.
  • Afterward, prepare the bowl of your hand or stand mixer, attached with a whisk attachment. Then, beat in the cake mix, cake flour, sugar, and kosher salt. Make sure to beat till all the ingredients incorporate well.
  • Then in another bowl, whisk in the sour cream, eggs, water, and vanilla.
  • Next, at low speed, gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture at medium speed. Do not forget to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl using a rubber spatula. Mix in until the cake batter incorporates thoroughly.
  • Now drop in all the mini chocolate chips and fold them in the batter evenly.
  • Afterward, pour the batter into the greased pans and bake it into the preheated oven for twenty to thirty minutes. Use a skewer to check and poke the center. Make sure to check if it comes out clean since it is done if it does; however if you see crumbs stuck on the stick, it needs more time.
  • Finally, allow the cake to cool on a wire rack fully. Decorate with frosting if desired. Keep refrigerated until five days.


Do not forget to add sour cream to the recipe because it has a high-fat content. And it gives additional moisture to the cake. In addition to that, it makes for a thicker cake batter, not to mention it provides a richer flavor.
Cake flour is the best option because its low protein is a perfect addition to cake mixes. Besides, it produces less gluten during the mixing process. As a result, you will make a softer cake with a finer crumb if you use cake flour. As an alternative, use all-purpose flour; it will still appear gorgeous.
Ensure to use light brown sugar since the hint of it corresponds perfectly with cake mixes. Not only that, but also it adds moisture to cakes due to the molasses in the sugar. Occasionally, you need to lessen the quantity of liquid to make up for the addition of brown sugar.
In some cases, make to put the mini chocolate chips to the dry ingredients first. After that, blend them with the wet ingredients. Because of that, when you combine the dry and wet ingredients, make sure to do it fast yet delicately. With that, make sure to use a spatula. Then, instantly pour the cake batter into the prepared pan.
