I found the recipe in my 1972 edition Betty Crocker cookbook around 1978 and have been baking it ever since. I love this delicious coffee cake and think you will enjoy it too. I have made some changes to this by increasing the nuts and coconut, but the major change I would add to this recipe (which I didn’t do in this batch) is to add sour cream. That would help increase the moistness of the recipe.

Chocolate Swirl Coffee Cake is a spectacular coffee cake for holiday breakfasts.
Chocolate chips are swirled into the batter and the topping has pecans and coconut. Chocolate Swirl Coffee Cake is oh, so delicious.
Here’s what I did.
Put bisquick in a mixing bowl. Add sugar, egg and milk.
Add melted butter. At this point I would also add sour cream the next time I make it. Whisk all ingredients together and beat for 30 seconds.
Spray a nine-inch square pan with cooking spray. (I used a 9×13″ baking pan because I doubled the recipe). Pour batter into prepared pan.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave. It took 90 seconds at 50% power. Spread the chocolate over top of the batter. Take a knife and swirl the chocolate into the batter.
Place finely diced pecans, walnuts, or any other kind of nut in mixing bowl. Add coconut, sugar and melted butter. Stir all the topping ingredients together thoroughly.
Sprinkle the topping ingredients evenly over top of the chocolate-swirled batter.
Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes or until done. Test with a toothpick for doneness. When toothpick inserted in center comes out clean then the coffee cake is done.
This is a great coffee cake to go along with morning tea.
I like to bake Chocolate Swirl Coffee Cake for company. Everyone loves it.
