Chocolate Chunk Coffee Cake

Remember how you used to find great recipes on the back of the sugar box or bag? You'd cut it off after you finished the bag, and you'd save those paper recipes for years. Well sugar boxes and bags still have them, but your limited to the two or three that fit on the package. Most sugar companies now have great websites and blogs with those recipes and more. Domino Sugar is one of those sites. I found this fabulous recipe for Chocolate Chunk Coffee there, and it's a must bake for a holiday breakfast. Serve it with a great cup of Hot Cocoa. Perfect for guests, too.

Chocolate Chunk Coffee Cake

10 oz - semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup - chopped walnuts
2/3 cup - Domino® Granulated Sugar

3/4 cup - butter, softened
1 1/4 cups - Domino® Granulated Sugar
3 - eggs
1 1/2 cups - sour cream
2 teaspoons - vanilla
2 1/2 cups - all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons - baking powder
1 teaspoon - baking soda
1/2 teaspoon - salt

For better mixing results, have all your ingredients at room temperature. Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 10-inch tube pan.

In small bowl, combine topping ingredients; set aside.

Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, sour cream and vanilla until well mixed. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in bowl. On low speed, add flour mixture to batter, beating until smooth.

Spoon 1/3 (about 2 cups) of the batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the topping (scant 1 cup). Repeat layering 2 more times. Bake 55 to 65 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 20 minutes. Remove from pan.

Makes 12 servings.
