This post was inspired by Farmers' "Part of Your Every Day" campaign, so you will notice I used Farmers milk, sour cream, and butter in this delicious recipe. This decadent cake is sure to please everyone in your family.
Recipe for Sour Cream Coffee Cake (with chocolate chips)
For the batter, you'll need:
1/2 cup softened Farmers* butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
250mL Farmers* sour cream
2 tbsp Farmers* milk
1 cup chocolate chips
For the topping, you'll need:
6 tbsp butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup pecan slices (optional)
2 tsp cinnamon
Cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Then, add the eggs (beating after each one is added).
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, soda, and baking powder.
Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture (alternating with the sour cream). Add the milk, and then fold in the chocolate chips. The batter will be very thick, and not overly easy to work with, but don't worry because it will spread out beautifully as it cooks.
Grease a tube pan, and half fill with batter. Cover with 1/2 of topping. Add the rest of the batter, and then add the rest of the topping.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes. Keep an eye on it... as over cooking will cause it to dry out.
This is a great coffee cake to serve to guests, but it also makes a special after school treat. Trust me... homework is much more enjoyable alongside this yummy cake.
Give this sour cream coffee cake recipe a try, and let me know what you think. It is guaranteed to make the ritual of an after school snack a little sweeter.
