  • Stir 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon together in a small bowl. Stir dark brown sugar, walnuts, and 1 teaspoon sugar together in another bowl. Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in third bowl.

  • Beat butter and white sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy. Mix sour cream into butter mixture. Add eggs one at a time, thoroughly beating each egg into the butter mixture before adding the next. Add vanilla with the last egg.

  • Stir flour mixture into butter mixture; add chocolate chips and stir until batter is well-combined. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the brown sugar-cinnamon mixture over the top of the batter. Pour remaining batter over the top. Spread walnut mixture evenly over the top of the batter to cover the entire surface of the cake.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool in the baking dish.

I put 4 small eggs instead of 3 large ones as a result the cake is a little crumbly. That is the only thing I would do differently next time. However the cake turned out very nicely. I quite like the brown sugar and cinnamon filling and the nuts brown sugar topping. It was very well received by my family. I will definitely make it again!! Read More

For my tastes there are too many flavors going on here. I would leave the chocolate chips out if using the filling and topping. I also thought it was too sweet so I would either top it or fill it but not both. It did bake up nice and moist. Read More

I followed this recipe exactly as it was and when the cake came out it was somewhat harder on the outside than the inside. The inside was not as moist as I wanted it to be but it was okay. The weird thing was that I even shortened the time it asked for to 5 minutes less (different ovens I thought might require different cooking time). I don't know what happened but if there is a trick to making this cake a bit more moist and not too hard on the outside I would give it a 4.5. Read More
