Cinnamon crumb cake with chocolate chips and pecans

Ingredients

  1. Cake
  2. 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  3. 1/2 cup sugar
  4. 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  5. 1/2 tsp salt
  6. 1/4 cup vegetable oil (I used canola)
  7. 3/4 cup milk
  8. 1 egg
  9. 1/2 cup chocolate chips, lightly coated in flour
  10. Cinnamon topping
  11. 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  12. 1/2 cup sugar
  13. 1/4 cup butter, softened
  14. 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  15. Pecans (optional)
  16. 1/2 cup pecans, toasted and chopped

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 375f/190c. Grease and flour a 9″ cake tin (tap out any excess flour), and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.

  3. In a separate bowl, beat together wet ingredients.

  4. Add wet ingredients to the dry and whisk until smooth. Note: you can add the chocolate chips at this point and mix them in, though I prefer to top the batter with them after I pour it into the cake tin.

  5. For the cinnamon topping, simply combine all the ingredients.

  6. Pour cake batter into the pan. Then, if you haven’t added them yet, top with chocolate chips (coating the chips in flour suspends them in the batter and keeps them from all sinking to the bottom), followed by the cinnamon mix. DO NOT top with the pecans yet because they will burn in the cooking (I speak from experience).

  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes. When fully cooked (I do the clean toothpick test), remove from the oven and place on a wire rack. Top it with pecans while still hot. Let the cake cool fully before serving.
