Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake
Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake 2 ½ cups Pancake Mix mix that requires only adding water 1/3 cup sugar ½ cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips ½ cup water ½ cup sour cream ½ teaspoon vanilla extract ¼ cup sugar ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon ¼ cup walnuts or pecans optional ½ cup powdered sugar 1 tbsp milk Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Spray an 8 inch square pan or dish with non-stick spray Combine pancake mix, sugar and chocolate chips in medium bowl. Then add water, sour cream and vanilla. Mix until combined. Batter will be very thick. Spread batter into prepared baking dish. Combine ¼ cup sugar, cinnamon and nuts (if using) in a small bowl. Sprinkle mixture over dough. Bake 24-26 minutes until golden brown. Whisk together powdered sugar and milk in small bowl. Drizzle glaze over warm cake. Recipe Notes Allow cake to cool for just a few minutes. Serve warm. I used the pancake mix that is the “Just Add Water” type of mix. If you only have pancake mix that requires you to add milk, eggs & oil, then you will need to replace the ½ cup water in this recipe with 2 large eggs and 2 tablespoons of milk. Then proceed with the rest of the directions. Also, the glaze isn’t really necessary on this coffee cake at all. We just liked the little added bit of sweetness it added to the cake.
