Sweet Topping

BeckyB April Square Tops

I am hoping our April theme will keep our heads held high and help fill our lives with social connections and squares filled with joy….The theme is top, and you don’t have to go outside to find topping squares…Create your post with a square photograph


More chocolate chips Mom…

A common plea…when I assembled the topping for our annual Christmas Morning sour cream chocolate chip coffee cake.

The sugar & mini chocolate chip & cinnamon mixture is first sprinkled between layers of thick batter carefully spread into a tube pan. The remaining is saved for the top.

A recipe is a recipe. Everything measured in cups, tablespoons and teaspoons. A scientific blending of ingredients designed for baked deliciousness.

Would too many chocolate chips weigh down the inner depths of the cake? Causing it to bake unevenly? As the sole family member with a food science background, those were my (and only my) concerns.

I am happy to report that nobody ever complained about the results…one way or the other.

And I never had a satisfactory answer to the eternal non-scientific question:

Is it ever really possible to have too many chocolate chips?

      1. I’d love it, so if you have time, there are probably others who’d be interested too 🙂 Can it be made in a 9 x 13 pan? As I don’t have a tube pan.

      2. Oh, I think I saw an article online about how to adjust recipes for pan size/shape, so no worries. I’m just interested in your recipe 🙂 🙂 But No Rush!! ❤
