Chocolate Chip Pecan Coffee Cake

  • Rating ****

This recipe nearly threw me off my low carb diet when I first made it. Eventually, I had to take the remainder and put it in the freezer. And, it does freeze very well. This makes a huge cake or you can bake it in mini loaf pans if you want to give several gifts. Enjoy!!

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and 1 1/4 cups of sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 9-inch springform pan. Combine the pecans, cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over batter.

Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes. Carefully run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen. Remove the sides of the pan. Cool completely before cutting.
