This Coffee Cake is topped with cinnamon streusel that bakes up beautifully.Add nuts and other dry fruits to the batter add streusel. Chocolate chip cake can be made in many styles and kinds and with additions of ( berries, coconut, vegan and marshmallows) one tip for making the cake is to make the cake slightly thicker for loafs,thinner for pan cakes and if you make muffins then add fruits and nuts for muffins.I am using the same batter to make this super easy coffee cake.
