This is a simple coffee cake, where the cake is layered in the middle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, and I have used brown sugar in place of white sugar. The recipe calls for finely chopped milk chocolate, but I do not like to chop chocolates as it can get very messy. So I have used chocolate chips instead. Half of the chocolate chips are sprinkled over the mixture and top with the rest of the cake batter. The top of the batter is then sprinkled with the remaining half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture, chocolate chips and nuts of your choice, I have used walnuts.
I've made half a recipe using a 6" round cake pan, and it takes about 30 minutes at 350F until it is done. Serve the cake warm or at room temperature.
This cake smells wonderful while it was baking, and it rose beautifully.
A delicious cake. Simple and good! It has a soft, tender moist texture and of course the pairing of cinnamon, sugar and chocolate are always a winning combination. This is one cake that I would not mind making again.
