Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

I love making tea cakes. We all need something to eat with a huge mug of tea right? And I am always looking for new and yummy things to feed the kids. This sour cream chocolate chip coffee cake is a rendition of my chocolate chip loaf cake. I make this when I need to feed more people and usually top it with chocolate ganache if I need to make it a show stopper. 

My love for entertaining is perfect when I need to experiment on recipes. I ask my guests for feedback and they actually know that it’s all feedback for my blog so they are always honest, which works out great for me. Otherwise I am always experimenting and tasting food myself, until I get it right! Which means millions of extra calories……!!!!! Which is a big NO NO! 

But this sour cream chocolate chip coffee cake was a huge hit amongst my husband’s friends this week. They even asked to take it home for their other halves. Which I was happy to do.
