Pin It Now!
Sweet Confessions Sunday Link Party #12

Welcome everyone to this weeks link party!  This week I have the featured links in their very own post that you can check out here.  Make to to check out the fabulous posts!  In place of the featured links I am bringing you all a scrumptious breakfast recipe (even if it is dinner time where you are, who doesn't want coffee cake for dinner?): Wake up Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake.  Yep, coffee cake with actual coffee.  And what the heck, some chocolate for good measure!  What a great way to wake up, or stay awake.  Most, chocolatey, with a hint of coffee goodness.  A guaranteed pick me up!

Wake Up Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake
(Adapted from Sweet Pea's Kitchen's Coffee Lover's Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake)
Topping and Filling:
  •  1/3 cup brown sugar
  •  4 ½ teaspoons instant coffee granules
  •  1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips       
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan and set aside.
  2. Filling/Topping: In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, coffee granules and cinnamon; set aside.   
  3. Coffee Cake: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Gradually add the flour mixture alternately with Greek yogurt, beginning and ending with flour mixture. (The batter will be thick)
  5. Spread half of the batter evenly into prepared baking pan (I sprayed my finger tips with non-stick spray and pressed it out, it was easier) and sprinkle with half the cinnamon-sugar topping and half the chocolate chips. Spoon the remaining batter in 8 dollops over the batter in the pan and spread gently. Sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon-sugar and chocolate chips.
  6. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (I used a glass pan and it took closer to 37 minutes, so just keep checking, it will depend on your pan and your oven).
