Cinnamon Chip Coffee Cake

I have had a bunch of cinnamon chips that I bought on clearance at the very beginning of this year, or maybe it was last Christmas I can’t remember, but they were about to expire & I needed something to do with them. My friend Jessica over at A Kitchen Addiction had this cake on her site & I knew I had to make it. I altered it slightly, and my family gobbled up several slices in one sitting. They were full on cake & totally ok with it. I haven’t used wheat flour in baking before, besides a Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Crust, so I could tell there was some in there, but it actually wasn’t bad.
I am a fan of anything with streusel on top & I absolutely love cinnamon chips (check out my Cinnamon Chip Bread & Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Muffins as well.) So this recipe is a winner. I do think I will bake it in a 13×9″ dish next time. The original recipe was for a 9×9 inch dish, I only had an 8×8″ dish, so it came up pretty high & took a long time to bake. Anyway, if you want a new coffee cake recipe to try, you will love this one!
Cinnamon Chip Coffee Cake
- 3 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup light sour cream
- 1 1/4 cup skim milk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup cinnamon chips
- 1 Tbsp butter, melted
- 2 Tbsp flour
- 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup cinnamon chips
- Prepare streusel in a bowl by melting the butter; then add everything but the cinnamon chips. Mix thoroughly with a fork. Should be wet, but crumbly. Set aside.
- In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, make the cake by beating the butter with the sugars. Add eggs & sour cream. Mix until smooth & incorporated. Add milk & mix together.
- In a separate bowl combine both flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt & cinnamon. Gradually add to the wet mixture in the mixing bowl. Fold in cinnamon chips.
- Pour batter into a greased baking dish. Sprinkle the top with the prepared streusel & ¼ cup cinnamon chips. Bake at 350*F for 45-50 minutes for an 8x8" square dish (which gets really full) or 30-35 minutes for a 9x13" dish. Check doneness with a knife in the center of the cake. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before cutting & consuming.

Think this would work as muffins? I’ve been searching for a coffee cake cinnamon chip muffin recipe.
For sure! Just fill the muffin tin 2/3 full, sprinkle with streusel, and bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
Cinnamon cake is one of my ever favorite cakes!!
This cake looks soooooooooo GOOD
Unfortunately we don’t have here cinnamon chips…. 🙁
So glad you liked it! I was actually just thinking about making it with sour cream the other day because I have a big container of it in the fridge! Now I’ll have to give it a try!
These look SO good, Amber! I’m a huge cinnamon fan. Can’t wait to try them 🙂
This looks so good Amber now that it’s cooled off some I can get back to baking and I think I have everything for this on hand yay
This looks amazing!! I never heard of cake like this so I am excited to try it. Thanks for sharing
I love that it’s lighter! I’ve been loving cooking with whole wheat flour, which I NEVER thought I would! It’s not as scary as I used to think it was 🙂

That looks sooooo good! I tried clicking the little “save recipe” button, but nothing happened?
Thanks LuAnn! The “save recipe” button is to save your recipes to Ziplist, but you’re right it wasn’t working, but it should be now. Thanks for letting me know. I am still newer partner with Ziplist & am still figuring it out. 🙂
