This chocolate chip pound cake recipe is one of our family’s favorites, and is a wonderful choice for Thanksgiving dessert. This post is sponsored by Keller’s Creamery butter – all opinions are always 100% my own.
It’s almost Thanksgiving! Have you planned your menu yet? Even if you’re not hosting, chances are you’re going to bring a dish to wherever you’re traveling to. I vote that you offer to make dessert, and try this delicious recipe that’s been a family tradition of ours for years.
We love getting together with all of our PA and NJ cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents on Thanksgiving afternoon. We have a big loud family dinner, pool tournaments in the basement, and conversation (or post-turkey naps!) on the couch. It’s always so much fun, and as much as I enjoy the turkey dinner, I’m not ashamed to admit that I actually look forward to Thanksgiving dessert the most!
This pound cake is moist, fluffy, buttery, and absolutely delicious.
To make the best pound cake, you need to use the best butter. That being said, we love, and have always loved, Keller’s Creamery butter. When I found out they were based in Philadelphia, I fell in love with them even more! Keller’s Creamery started in 1906, and have been working hard on developing a product (without hormones or artificial ingredients) ever since.
As someone who has grown up in the Philadelphia region, I had no idea that Philadelphia is the third largest butter market in the country. I also learned that last Thanksgiving, Philadelphians bought more than 2.5 million pounds of butter. 😱 That’s enough sticks of butter to run Rocky’s path up the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps 28,693* times!
They also have the cutest little turkey sculptures (I got mine at Weis) These would be perfect on your Thanksgiving dinner table!
And now – the recipe for our family favorite Chocolate Chip Pound Cake. I remember eating this fresh out of the oven when I was a kid – it’s so buttery, fluffy and delicious. It will be a huge hit for your family Thanksgiving!

These butter facts were super fun – I thought you’d like them too!
Philadelphians cited they would rather do the following than have a Thanksgiving with no butter:
- Almost half would rather miss out on a season of Philadelphia Eagles football
- About 26 percent would rather go without wine and beer at their remaining 2017
- About 22 percent would rather give up Philly cheesesteak for a year
- 10 percent would rather have no turkey with their Thanksgiving meal…for the next 10 years!
