Chocolate Chip Sour Cream CAKE

When we were little, Sonya’s mom and mine and some of their friends had “coffees” at each others’ houses, and we kids got to have a playdate. This cake was something my mom made for these shindigs and for lots of other events (you make it in a 9×13, but can very easily split it into two 8×8’s and give one away to a friend and keep one for yourself!). Matt’s mom makes a similar version that we love, too, that’s more of a bar than cake (and it’s the next post).

2 cups flour
1½ cups sugar
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1⅓ cup sour cream
⅔ cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
½ cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
6 oz chocolate chips

*Heat oven to 325. Grease 13×9 pan.
*In large bowl, combine first 9 ingredients. Blend 1 minute at low speed, then 2 minutes at medium. Pour ½ batter into greased pan. In small bowl, combine ½ cup sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle ½ mixture and ½ chocolate chips over batter. Repeat with remaining batter, sugar mixture and chocolate chips.
*Bake 35-40 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

    Well, now you’ve just made me downright curious; I will HAVE to make your mom’s version too (purely for scientific comparative reasons).
