Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

This is one of those recipes that everyone loves. It's super moist, the topping is crunchy, and it tastes better the next day room temperature. Or heated up in the microwave. Or in the morning as a little snack...

I credit my grandma with this recipe, but I'm not certain where it came from originally. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 lb. softened butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar (and an additional 1/3 cup sugar for topping)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (reserve 4 oz. for topping)
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9" x 13" pan.

2. In large bowl, cream butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and sour cream until fluffy.

3. In medium bowl, sift together (or mix thoroughly) flour, baking powder and baking soda.

4. On low speed, mix in flour mixture, and milk until ingredients are blended. Alternate between adding flour mixture and milk.

5. Fold in 8 oz. of chocolate chips to the batter. Pour batter into greased and floured pan.

6. In a separate bowl, mix 1 tsp. cinnamon with the remaining 4 oz. of chocolate chips. Add 1/3 cup of sugar to the mixture. (Add it after the cinnamon is dusted on the chips, because it tastes better that way...trust me!) Sprinkle the topping onto the batter evenly.

7. Bake the cake for 30 - 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out cleanly.

8. Eat, enjoy and share with your friends!

Well, what are you waiting for? Print this out and go make it already!

I take it you wrote and drew everything for this recipe?? How cool! That makes for a very special cookbook. I've wanted to do something similar...with pics I take of my favorite recipes, and then maybe printing up a book on Blurb!
