For the Topping and Filling:

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 ½ teaspoons instant coffee granules
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
    For the Coffee Cake:

    • 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 egg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan and set aside.
  2. To make the topping/filling: In a small bowl combine the sugar, coffee granules and cinnamon; set aside.
  3. To make the coffee cake: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Gradually add the flour mixture alternately with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour mixture. (The batter will be thick)
  5. Spread half of the batter evenly into prepared baking pan 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.
