A great breakfast "coffee cake" but not very appropriate as an after-dinner desert. Kind of crumbly. But went great with coffee the next morning. Read More

Looks pretty. All of my chocolate chips sank to the bottom of the pan. Next time I will pour all the batter into the pan, top with chips and then sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Read More

This is definitely like coffee cake with a layer of chocolate. Good to enjoy with a coffee or a glass of milk. There wasn't a lot of batter so I was a little concerned about it rising but it turned out perfect. Will make again without any changes. Read More

I felt like this needed more chocolate. Instead of putting 1 cup of chocolate, I may put 1.5 or 2 cups next time. And I would put the choclate in two layers instead of one. The family really enjoyed this recipe though. Thanks. Read More

I grew up eating 'Crater Cake' and have always loved it. This recipe, while still good, did not do it justice. I tried it first and then tried one from another site. The other recipe is just like I remember it from childhood. Use semi-sweet chips not milk chips though. http://www.mycookingblog.com/post/1-valli/6803/Banana-Crater-Cake Read More
