Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake - The Cozy Nook

I was positive I had shared this recipe before. After all I have been making this recipe for years now, hearing the “Oohh’s” and “Aahh’s” with each service.

After searching my blog high and low, it appears I have not shared this gem of a recipe, so it is time!

I make this chocolate chip cake as a treat for my family occasionally, and especially when we have guests. There are rarely any leftovers.

Chocolate Chip Cake
Found here at Mel’s Kitchen Café

Cake Batter:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups sour cream
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Middle and Top:

  • cinnamon sugar
  • 1 bag chocolate chips, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 if using a glass pan).

Grease a 9 X 13 pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl combine all of the cake batter ingredients. Mix for 1 minute at low speed; mix 3 minutes at medium speed.

Pour 1/2 of batter into greased pan. Generously sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over batter making sure to get the corners and then sprinkle with 1/2 bag of chocolate chips. Pour remaining cake batter on top and spread across bottom layer. Repeat with cinnamon and sugar and chocolate chips.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with only a few crumbs (don’t overbake or cake will be dry!).
