Monday Munchies: Southern Living Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

I received The Southern Living Cookbook as a wedding gift.  For the past 25 years it has been my trusted source for delicious food.  This recipe for Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake is a family favorite.  You'll find us eating it while we watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Rose Bowl Parade.  It's also the breakfast request on most birthdays.

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

2 c flour
2 t baking powder
1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c butter, softened
2 eggs
3/4 c milk
1 t vanilla
6 oz chocolate chips

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and butter in bowl and beat at slow speed of a mixer until mixture resembles fine crumbs.  Set aside 1 cup of crumb mixture.

Add eggs, milk and vanilla to remaining crumb mixture.  Mix well. 

Pour batter into greased 7x11 pan.  Sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Top with reserved crumb mixture.

Bake in 350* preheated oven for 35-40 minutes.

Cool slightly and serve.
My children actually prefer this one cool so making it the night before suits them fine.
