  • 2 Cups All purpose flour
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Stick butter room temperature
  • 2 Large Eggs room temp
  • 3/4 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/4 Cup Milk
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips


  • 3 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips



  • Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9x9 inch square baking dish and set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a large bowl or bowl of stand mixer beat together the butter and sugar until creamy.  Add the eggs in one at a time mixing after each addition.  In a measuring cup whisk together the milk and sour cream.  Add to the butter mixture and mix until well combined.
  • With the mixer running on low add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients (I do this in thirds). Fold in chocolate chips.  Pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle with the topping and extra chocolate chips. Bake for 35-40 minutes until a toothpick inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean. 


  • Add the butter, cinnamon, flour and brown sugar to a medium bowl.  Use two forks to cut the butter into the flour mixture until everything is combined and the mixture is crumbly.  
  • Alternately, you can place all of the topping ingredients into your food processor and pulse until coarse crumbs are formed.
