Food Librarian - Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Coffee Cake

When I saw this cake on Blue is Bleu's blog and instantly knew I had to make it! Audrie is so great! I've enjoyed her blog for a long time and you should definitely check it out! Audrie said she got the recipe from Smitten Kitchen's blog.

Not much to say...besides MAKE IT.
It's big. It's chocolate. It's cake. It's good. It's rich (1 stick of butter and 16 ounces of sour cream!) but not crazy, oozing rich. And my middle layer of cinnamon, sugar and chocolate chips didn't end up on the bottom! That's a good thing.

My co-workers really liked this when I brought it in last week. It an easy treat to make and really delicious. Definitely give it a try!

And thanks to everyone for your well wishes about my Dad and our lengthy Father's Day visit to Urgent Care! I so appreciate it! He tells me he is feeling a bit better now...it's such a pain (literally) to get old. Dad now uses a cane to help him around, and I've nicknamed him (with love): The Turtle. He has a backyard full of summer crops (I'll profile those soon), and luckily my mom is helping him out!

I 'discovered' food blogs when my local paper published an article about Smitten Kitchen, along with this recipe! I'm smiling to think of all that's happened since then. I think I should make it soon just to celebrate, but I'd rather think of it as "your" cake...and Audrie's (LOVE her name, going to go visit her blog now...) It looks fantastic! Hope your dad is better.

I loved this cake when I made it a few months ago. I wish mine was as plushy looking as Deb's. That reminds me of Dorie's squares! Both are yummy!!

Wow, this looks delish. So glad to hear The Turtle is doing well. Canes are a good thing because they can prevent falls. Hopefully he won't let his ego get in the way of him using it regularly. Give your dad (and mom) my love from D.C. xoxoxo Racheal

I have a love hate relationship with this post though. I hate that I can't eat it right this very minute since I'm sitting at my computer at work, but I'm happy that it's in my future.

Ooh, yum. I know this one will be a big hit with Brianna, who asks me to put chocolate chips in everything. =) I'm glad to hear that your dad is doing better, too.
