So…Chocolate chunks. Streusel. Coffee. Cake. What’s not to love right? Add in a cup of coffee on the side, a good book, a fork, and a little alone time. Works for me. Oh, did I mention quick and easy? This beats anything you can grab on the way. Just sayin’…

Try Chocolate-Streusel Coffee Cake with chocolate chunks, slivered almonds & freshly brewed coffee. Chocolate-Streusel Coffee Cake is a nice morning treat.
What You Need
2/3 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup chopped PLANTERS Slivered Almonds
1 pkg. (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
brewed strong MAXWELL HOUSE Coffee (any variety), cooled
1-1/2 pkg. (4 oz. each) BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate (6 oz.), chopped
Let’s Make It
1 – Heat oven to 350°F.
2 – Combine flour and sugar in medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts.
3 – Prepare cake batter as directed on package, substituting the brewed coffee for the water.
4 – Pour into 15x10x1-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray; sprinkle with half the chocolate. Top with nut mixture and remaining chocolate.
5 – Bake 20 to 25 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.
Tip 1 – Special Extra: Melt 2 oz. additional BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate as directed on package. Drizzle over cooled coffee cake; let stand until chocolate is firm.
My Tip: You can use any semi-sweet chocolate chunks so you don’t have to chop. And in my house, coffee is coffee. Just sayin’.
Regular drill. CLICK HERE for all the nutritional details. As y’all know, some of my heroines don’t really (or can’t) cook. They have a variety of reasons/excuses. That said, my Tate Brothers ALL know their way around the kitchen and not just grilling out back. Katherine Barron Tate taught her sons to be self-sufficient. Which comes in really handy in TWICE THE TEMPTATION. It’s not that Britt can’t cook, it’s that she seldom has time. Good thing Cooper likes to spoil her and while their waiting for the blessed event–at least when she’s not mad and storming (or sneaking) away from him, Coop makes sure she has all the yummies in her tummy. This easy-peasy, whip-it-up-in-no-time recipe is a favorite of them both. Want to know more about them? Just click on the cover or the title and head on over to grab your copy of their story. We’re coming on up spring storm season so Britt is going to be busier than ever! 😉 Speaking of, how’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
