Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake is so full of chocolates, from the inside to the outside. So good it will be gone in seconds.
Have you ever eaten such a delicious cake that it is so good it doesn’t even need icing? If not then this will be your first. This loaf cake not only has a streusel topping but is also loaded with mini chocolate chips.
I first started making this cake about 5 years ago. But to tell you the truth, lately I have really started getting into baking with greek yogurt and loving it, and white chocolate chips aren’t so bad either. So I decided to change it up a bit and it has become one of my favourites.
It is also wonderful served as a Breakfast Cake, Snack or as a Dessert when you have a get together.
When I make it, I usually make it in a loaf form but I am sure cupcakes or even a small cake form would work well also. I’m sure any fomr you decide to bake this cake it will be delicious. How could it not be with all those chocolate chips!
Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake
Just make sure you start to watch it at about 50 minutes into baking because you don’t want an over done Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake.
I would also advise you to let it cool before cutting and if it lasts long enough it is even better the day after. Now I am off to brew another cup of coffee and yeah why not eat another slice. Enjoy!
