Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake


My 12 year old son wanted to make me a cake for Mother’s Day. Let me follow that up with the fact that I don’t like people in my kitchen. I’m a bit of a control freak that way :). And since he is not very experienced it takes him forEVER to make anything. However, I managed to get by with very minimal interference. This cake recipe is delicious and works with either yogurt or a egg replacer like Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer. His cake turned out great!!

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Prepare Topping:

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Mix together and set aside.


Cream together:

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup white sugar

Then add in egg replacer:

  • either 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • or 2 tbsp egg replacer mixed with 6 tbsp water

              (equivalent to 2 eggs)

Then add:

  • 1 cup milk

Mix well and then add in sifted dry ingredients:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Mix until well blended. This batter will be thick.

Spread half the batter in the bottom of a tube pan. Then top with 1/2 of the topping mixture. Then add the rest of the batter for the next layer and cover with the rest of the topping.

Bake 350 degrees F for approximately 60 minutes. It will come out with yummy layers of cake and chocolate!
