Mmmm. Mmmmmmmmm. Is there anything better than cinnamon + sugar + chocolate + cake? I didn’t think so. This recipe is pretty easy – and makes a big 9×13 cake!
1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs, separated
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
16 ounces sour cream
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
12 ounces chocolate chips
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1-1/2 cups sugar, then mix in the egg yolks and vanilla. Sift flour, baking soda and baking powder together into a separate bowl. Alternately add sour cream and then dry ingredients into butter mixture. Beat eggs whites until stiff, then fold into batter. Mix last 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon together in a separate, small dish.
3. In a greased 9″x13″ pan, pour in half of the cake batter. Sprinkle the top with half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture and half of the chocolate chips. Pour remaining batter on top, sprinkling the top with the remaining cinnamon-sugar and chocolate chips.
4. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
