Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Streusel Cake

January 8, 2012

I had no intentions of posting this cake. My office was moving to a new location and I wanted to bring something in on packing day. I made this on a whim because I had all the ingredients, yet the positive response from co-workers was so immense, I felt I had to post the recipe for safekeeping.

I even had a woman (who is a fantastic baker herself) tell me it’s the best streusel cake she ever had. We now swap recipes, how fun! Funny how the least expected things in life turn out to be the best in life. I was even paranoid it was under-baked. Now I’ll add this to my favorites, very quick to make too.

1 ½ cups butter

1 ½ cups sugar

3 eggs

1 ½ tsp vanilla

1 ¼ cups sour cream

2 ½ cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

Streusel Middle

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1 cup flour

3 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

6 tbsp butter

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients in one bowl. Wet ingredients to be mixed in separate bowl and then folded into dry ingredients. Pour half into a bunt pan or angel food pan that is greased. Sprinkle 2/3 of the streusel mix followed by topping off with remaining batter. Sprinkle remaining streusel mix on top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-60 minutes. After cake is cooled drizzle with glaze. I made it with the leftover sour cream, powdered sugar and a squirt of lemon juice. Not sure of the exact ratio, just eye balled it.
