Chocolate Chip Cake

We had a church function tonight and I wanted to make something easy, but yummy. I found this recipe at My Kitchen Cafe and decided to try it. It was so yummy! I think it would even be good as a coffee cake without the chocolate and more cinnamon sugar. YUM!

Chocolate Chip Cake
from My Kitchen Cafe

Cake Batter:
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups sour cream
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Middle & Top:
cinnamon sugar (mix them together and then sprinkle the mixture on the layers.)
1 bag chocolate chips, divided (I used semisweet)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 if using a glass pan). Grease a 9 X 13 pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl combine all of the cake batter ingredients. Mix for 1 minute at low speed; mix 3 minutes at medium speed. Pour 1/2 of batter into greased pan. Generously sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over batter making sure to get the corners and then sprinkle with 1/2 bag of chocolate chips. Pour remaining cake batter on top and spread across bottom layer. Repeat with cinnamon and sugar and chocolate chips. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with only a few crumbs (don't over bake or cake will be dry!).

*Note- I baked this in a glass baking dish and it took exactly 35 minutes. It may take a little longer, so if you get to 35 minutes, check it every couple of minutes, because at 30 minutes I didn't think this would be done at 35 minutes, and it was!
