sour cream and chocolate chip coffee cake recipeWhen someone comes over to visit I think that you should have something baked for them.  It does not always happen that I am able to do this, but I do try.  I love to cook and bake for people.  It is my way of saying that I love them.  I really, really love them when they show up and I have this little baby for them.  My house smells cinnamony and chocolaty and heavenly.  I have made this cake many, many times (sometimes it appears for Christmas morning breakfast) and it never disappoints.  The egg whites threw me off the first time, I had never made a coffee cake with beaten egg whites before, but this cake is tender and light.  The cinnamon sugar mixture sparkles and makes a nice crunchy top.  Make yourself a steaming cup of coffee or tea and invite someone you love over to share this coffee cake with you.

We made this for Anne, Clay’s speech teacher.  We love her very much and wanted to make her a nice treat.  She is so wonderful with Clay and got him talking!  We are so grateful for her.

This delightful recipe comes from Smitten Kitchen.

    This is to die for! So yummy and highly addictive. It should come with a caution sign. I did change the butter to just under a 1/4 cup and added 100ml of applesauce to make up the difference, and cut the sugar to 1/2 cup white & 1/2 cup brown plus used light (not fat free, fat free means more chemicals) sour cream. Probably could of snuck in some whole wheat flour but was too scared it would make it too heavy. The only problem with making these small changes is now I feel as if I can eat twice as much cake…agh….maybe I should of left as is :)

    Everyone should try this recipe. SOOOOOO good!

    Just made this tonight! I made it in 2 bread pans as I needed to take some to work and leave some for the kids (otherwise they complain) Just tried it and it is YUMMY! Should have taken it out a min sooner though as a few of my chocolate chips got a bit toasty! Oops, oh well still tastes good!

    Thanks so much, this one is a keeper in my file!

    Sour Cream is quite hard to come by where I live (Japan) and when I do find it, it is outrageously expensive. Can you think of a substitue? Perhaps plain yogurt would work?

    Anyways, this looks great, thanks!
