Chocolate Chip Cake

I had seen this recipe a while back and just hadn't had the chance to make it yet. I finally got around to making it when I took dinner to my friend Erin after she had her latest Bambino- A cute little boy named Cohen.

This cake was delicious and moist and I'm glad I took some of it to my friend. This is one I could have eaten all by myself.

Chocolate Chip Cake
From A. Marilyn and Monique G.
Taken from My Kitchen Cafe

Cake Batter:
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups sour cream
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Middle & Top:
cinnamon sugar (I keep my cinnamon and sugar in a glass shaker so I didn't measure exactly how much I used - a guesstimate would be 2 tablespoons for each layer)
1 bag chocolate chips, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 if using a glass pan). Grease a 9 X 13 pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl combine all of the cake batter ingredients. Mix for 1 minute at low speed; mix 3 minutes at medium speed. Pour 1/2 of batter into greased pan. Generously sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over batter making sure to get the corners and then sprinkle with 1/2 bag of chocolate chips. Pour remaining cake batter on top and spread across bottom layer. Repeat with cinnamon and sugar and chocolate chips. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with only a few crumbs (don't overbake or cake will be dry!).

Hi Natalie, it's Jeni O. I thought I would just leave you a comment with my email instead of calling Sandy for yours. If want an invite to my blog just email me your email address.

I've enjoyed looking through some of your recipes. I love cooking too. I've just printed off your Anzac biscuit recipe, we lost our favorite one and haven't found one the same since. I have a recipe for caramel slice from Mark's sister if you ever want it.

This looks delish! Reminds me of "Coffee Cake". I'll have to make it sometime.

All your recipes look wonderful. I especially liked that chicken sausage pasta thing. Love to make casseroles when the weather gets cooler. Sue

This sounds so great! I was just going through all my old blog posts on my blog and seeing ones that I needed to add pictures to. I feel bad because I just now saw your comment on the cheesy chicken lasagna I'd posted. You are so sweet and thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it---yes, I know, this is very belated. But just wanted to say thanks for stopping by my blog!
