Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Beat butter and cream cheese in a large bowl with an electric mixer until well-blended, about 30 seconds. Beat in 1 1/4 cups sugar and vanilla extract until mixture is light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Pour in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing until just incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour the batter into prepared pan.
  4. Mix pecans, 1/4 cup sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl; sprinkle over batter.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool on a wire rack. Serve warm.

Cake was too dry. Not moist at all, even warm or cold. Did not like.

My hubby loved this! It was delicious and easy. I made it as written with the exception that I didn't have a 9" springform pan. I put it in a cake pan I had and it finished baking in about 30 minutes. Very good coffee cake.

I loved this very easy to make coffee cake. Made it 3 times in 2 weeks for various events. I prefer w/o nuts. Ages 8 - 80 loved it.

I loved this recipe. I made this for a get together we are having tomorrow night, but had to try it tonight because the batter was amazing. I did add a little more milk to make sure it would stay moist. I also used walnuts instead of pecans. I put this in a bundt pan to make it decorative and baked it at 350 for 50 minutes. I will probably add more chocolate chips next time, but I love chocolate chips.

This was an easy to make but really good recipe. I did cut down the sugar in the coffee cake from 1 1/4 to 1 cup and hubby who was a very sweet tooth still loved it. I think it was due to the sugar you get from the chocolate chips. Next time I may even substitute the chocolate chips for apple because I think that would be a god combination with the pecans and cinnamon...or maybe a combination of white chocolate chips and apple? Thanks for the recipe!
