Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Rated as 4.65 out of 5 Stars

"When I was a teacher, this recipe was recommended by one of my student's parents. I've made it so many times, I can't imagine hosting a brunch without it. Chocolate chips add sweet bursts of flavor to the rich and tender coffee cake. --Michelle Krzmarzick Redondo Beach, California"
