My husband taught a newly married Sunday school class for about eight years and each Sunday different couples would rotate bringing breakfast. It was usually a pretty large spread. This recipe came from Colleen Parks, a vegetarian in our Sunday school class, who always found creative ways to make breakfast with sweets, quiches, assorted fruits and other confections that didn’t include meat.
I’m not sure who Colleen got the recipe from…whether her mom, sister, a relative, from a cookbook or online. This recipe got passed around our class a lot because everyone loved it!

It comes out perfectly every time. It’s also great for holiday breakfasts. Give Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake a try. Sweet tooth lovers will be in seventh heaven.
When I first posted this recipe in July 2012, it was in the early days of my blog. I redid the recipe in February 2013 but I was still using an iPhone for a camera so my pictures weren’t as clear as I would have liked.
I recently remade this recipe (June 2016) for a breakfast bash at our church, along with Breakfast Bake. The tables were laden with all kinds of muffins and sweet treats like coffeecakes, but this one was demolished pronto! No one likes to pass up on chocolate. 🙂
Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake has a delicious chocolate chip streusel layer in between the cake layers and on top!
Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake has lovely flavors, and the cinnamon and chocolate chips really work well together. It’s great with coffee or hot tea.
Cinnamon, sugar and chocolate chips are sprinkled over top as well as in the middle of the coffeecake making for dynamic flavors that will tempt your taste buds.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Soften butter. Add sugar, eggs, sour cream, vanilla, baking soda and baking powder.
Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods.
Stir with wooden spoon to combine.
In a separate bowl combine chocolate chips. Add granulated sugar and cinnamon. Stir ingredients to combine. Set aside.
Spread half of the coffee cake mixture into the bottom of a 9×13″ glass baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Sprinkle with half of the chocolate chip mixture.
Spread remaining cake batter on top of chocolate chip mixture. Spread with knife to the edges of baking dish.
Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chip mixture.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cut Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake into squares to serve. This luscious cake is always a hit!
Doesn’t Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake look scrumptious? We love this coffee cake recipe. Having two layers of chocolate chip/cinnamon mixture adds such a delightful touch.
