Tasty Tuesday: Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

I thought I'd follow up last week's Thrifty Thursday: It's Chic to Be Cheap post on Girls' Nights with a great recipe that you could use for a Girls Only brunch. Today's submission to Jen's Tasty Tuesday party is something that I whipped up the night before a Bible study, and found very easy to haul over to church and serve up to my girlfriends.

{Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake}

from Rachael Ray magazine


Ingredients:

2 cups all purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 stick (4 oz.) unsalted butter, at room temp.

2 large eggs, at room temp.

1 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup chocolate chips (or, if you're me, just dump a whole bunch in there until it looks chocolatey enough!)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 8 inch square baking pan. In medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon.

Using an electric mixer, beat together butter and remaining 1 cup sugar until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, then beat in sour cream and vanilla. Fold in flour mixture in 2 parts, until just combined.

Pour half the batter into the cake pan and sprinkle half the cinnamon sugar mixture and half the chocolate chips. Spoon remaining batter as evenly as possible over filling, spreading gently. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar mixture and chocolate chips.

Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.

Share with your girlfriends, and if your kids ask for some, give them some crackers instead! You'll be the most popular girl there, for sure!

{Bon Appetit!}
