Chocolate Chip Cake

While scouring through old pictures trying to find things to post I found this and couldn't believe I hadn't posted it. (Well, I can't post every one of Melanie's recipes even though I've tried most of them and suggest that you do too.) This was one of my favorites and is a go to dessert in my house now. I love the chocolate/cinnamon combo . So moist and delicious and deliciously easy. Baked goods with sour cream are the best! For an extra treat, serve with a little vanilla ice cream on the side.

Chocolate Chip Cake
My Kitchen Cafe

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 & Top:

cinnamon sugar about 2 Tbsp. for each layer

1 12 oz. 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 over bake or cake will be dry!).

*This could be really good with some chopped pecans on top.*
