Chocolate Chip Coffee Ring
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking cocoa
1/4 cup cold butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Add sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 8-cup fluted tube pan.
For topping, combine the flour, sugar and cocoa; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips. Sprinkle over batter.
Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 20 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Yield: 8-10 servings.
Editor’s Note: A greased 9-in. square baking pan can be used instead of the tube pan; bake for 45-50 minutes.
