TWD: Chocolate Chunk Coffee Cake



This week's TWD pick - a decadent chocolate chunk muffin (which I made into a coffee cake) - was by Bridget of The Way the Cookie Crumbles blog. It is found on page 18 of Dorie's book or on Bridget's blog.

I opted to omit the melted chocolate and cocoa powder from the recipe and to just stir in the chocolate chunks instead. I like chocolate but am not a big fan of double chocolate. On another note, I also noticed that more often than not I end up baking muffins in cake pans. I find the clean-up faster since you only have to clean 1 pan versus 12 little muffin tins. I also find that the coffee cakes are more moist than the muffins, which is an added bonus. We really enjoyed this week's recipe. Any excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast is a good one!

I'm always down to minimize clean-up! The un-fun part of baking :)

A cake pan? Does it really work? I'm always afraid that muffin dough in a cake pan could endup dry at the edges and not through in the middle.
