THB : Milk Chocolate-Walnut Coffee Cake

It's bake-time at The Home Bakers (THB), and this week's bake, Milk-Chocolate-Walnut Coffee Cake, is selected by Eileen of Hundred Eighty Degrees.

This is a simple coffee cake, where the cake is layered in the middle with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, and I have used brown sugar in place of white sugar. The recipe calls for finely chopped milk chocolate, but I do not like to chop chocolates as it can get very messy. So I have used chocolate chips instead. Half of the chocolate chips are sprinkled over the mixture and top with the rest of the cake batter. The top of the batter is then sprinkled with the remaining half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture, chocolate chips and nuts of your choice, I have used walnuts.

I've made half a recipe using a 6" round cake pan, and it takes about 30 minutes at 350F until it is done. Serve the cake warm or at room temperature.

This cake smells wonderful while it was baking, and it rose beautifully. 

A delicious cake. Simple and good! It has a soft, tender moist texture and  of course the pairing of cinnamon, sugar and chocolate are always a winning combination. This is one cake that I would not mind making again.

  5. Oh Joyce, it sounds heavenly. I do believe I can smell it from here. I have a "naked" cup of coffee by my side, I sure could use just one piece of that cake. I'll be saving this for sure, as a matter of fact, I think I will just pin it for safe keeping:)

    Thanks for sharing, Joyce...

    P.S. I am doing a post on Sunday; a tribute to Chinese New Year, would you mind very much if I grabbed one of your cookies to include in the post? I would of course link back to your blog for the recipe. I'll be sharing a book about the Cooky Lady, Lottie Moon. Thanks Joyce:)
