When I first posted this recipe in August 2012, I was using an inferior iPhone 3 for a camera since that was still the very early days of food blogging for me. The pictures weren’t as clear as I would have liked, so I’ve been remaking all those first year recipes to get better pictures. I recently I remade this coffeecake (June 2016) for a family that recently adopted a child. They loved the recipe and I have to admit, I ate more than my share of crumbs and small pieces. I still love this delightful recipe. If you’re a chocolate lover, I think you’ll agree.
