Chocolate chip coffee cake

I love coffee cakes. I love chocolate. I love finding recipes about chocolate or coffee cake and then i print them or tear them out of magazines. (even if the magazines don't belong to me. Spare me the lecture...). Sometimes when the day is perfect that the sun is shining on me, a special recipe finds its place on my fridge. This recipe has been on my fridge for about 8 months.  I found it at: http://www.lovintheoven.com/2010/02/chocolate-chip-coffee-cake.html . This cake looked and sounded  soooooo good. I have been meaning to make it and i finally found an excuse. What was the excuse? To bribe little kids so that i will always remain their favorite. Yup.  Don't judge me bro.


•1 stick butter at room temp.
•1/2 cup of sugar
•1/3 cup brown sugar
•2 eggs
•1 cup sour cream
•1 tsp vanilla
•1 tsp water
•2 cups flour
•1 1/2 tsp baking powder
•1 tsp baking soda
•1 tsp cinnamon
•6 oz chocolate chips  (i used mini chocolate chips)

1. mix 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, chocolate chips.

2. cream butter, 1 cup white sugar, and eggs. add the sour cream, vanilla and water.

3. in a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder and soda. combine into the wet ingredients.

4. pour half of the batter into a greased and floured 9×13 inch pan. sprinkle half of the cinnamon, sugar and chocolate chip mixture on the batter. pour in the rest of the batter and top with the rest of the cinnamon, sugar and chip mix. - This batter is a little dense so this is going to take time. Don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect because the batter will rise and swell all around the empty spaces.

5. bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. let it cool for at least an hour before cutting into it, or the chocolate chips will be too melty and it will be hard to get out of the pan.
