Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

I hosted a playdate today, so I made this yummy cake for us to munch on. Oh wow--it is so yummy! The chocolate chips make it extra moist. Prepare yourself for some serious indulging with this one. I need to thank Mommy's Kitchen again for this recipe. She has some good stuff on her blog!

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature (I used salted butter, so I left out the salt.)
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.

In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, soda and salt.

In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon set aside.

Using a electric mixer, beat together the remaining 1 cup sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then beat in the sour cream and vanilla.

Fold in the flour mixture in two parts until just combined. Pour half the batter into a small cake pan (8x8 or oval shaped) and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar mixture and half of the chocolate chips. Spoon the remaining batter as evenly as possible over the filling. Spread gently and evenly. Sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon mixture and chocolate chips.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
