Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter two 9-inch cake pans and line with parchment paper.

In a pan over low heat, melt chocolate in ⅓ cup of coffee, stirring constantly. When melted, set aside to cool slightly.

In a bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well. Add vanilla and blend in chocolate. Beat well.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry mixture alternately with the remaining 1 cup of coffee, mixing just enough to combine, by hand or on lowest mixer speed.

Pour batter into prepared pans and bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pans, then remove and cool on a rack. (Layers are fragile handle carefully.)

Recipe Summary

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch pan.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and soda. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and 1 cup of sugar. Add eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Mix well.

Add the flour mixture and combine. Batter will be thick.

In a separate bowl, combine chocolate chips, 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

Spread half of the cake batter in prepared pan. Sprinkle half of the chocolate chip mixture over the batter. Repeat with the remaining batter, and then the remaining chocolate chip mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Recipe Summary

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (one 1/4-ounce envelope) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons plus a pinch of granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup warm milk (110 degrees)
  • 1 large egg plus 1 large egg yolk
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for bowl, pan, and parchment
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon heavy cream, for egg wash
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (1 1/4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

Make the cake: Sprinkle yeast and a pinch of granulated sugar over milk in a medium bowl. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.

Whisk together remaining 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, the egg, and yolk. Whisk into yeast mixture.

Combine flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt in the bowl of a mixer. Add egg mixture. Beat on low speed until almost fully combined, about 30 seconds. Switch to the dough-hook attachment. Add butter. Beat until smooth, soft, and slightly sticky, about 10 minutes.

Butter a large bowl. Turn out dough onto a floured surface knead a few times until smooth. Place in bowl, turn to coat, and cover with plastic wrap. Let stand in a warm place until doubled in volume, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Make the filling: Combine chocolate, granulated sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or rub in with your fingers until combined.

Punch down dough. Transfer to a floured work surface. Let stand for 5 minutes. Roll out to an 18-inch square (about 1/8 inch thick). Brush edges with egg wash. Spread filling over dough, reserving 1/2 cup and leaving a 1-inch border. Tightly roll dough like a jelly roll. Pinch seam to seal, and fold in half to bring ends together to form a U. Twist 2 or 3 times to "braid." Butter a 5-by-10-inch loaf pan, and line with parchment, leaving 1-inch overhangs butter parchment. Transfer dough to pan. Brush top with egg wash.

Make the crumb topping: Combine confectioners' sugar, flour, and butter. Sprinkle topping and reserved 1/2 cup filling over cake.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drape plastic wrap over dough. Let stand in a warm place until risen by half, 20 to 30 minutes.

Remove plastic wrap, and bake, rotating halfway through, until golden, about 55 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees. Bake until deeply golden, 15 to 20 minutes more (cover with foil if top gets too dark). Transfer pan to a wire rack. Let cake cool.

How would you rate Coffee Cake with Chocolate Streusel?

super good. i made it without walnuts. i will say that i definitely overworked the dough, not only did it get HUGE because of the gluten but the texture was a little more spongey and less cakey. still great though. also i thought it was weird that this cake is made in a bundt pan and not a normal fluted pan because it's essentially upside down. the streusel is on the opposite side of the cute bundt design. right? just me? also no, lol, this cake doesn't contain coffee. but it would go great with coffee, or ice cream, or anything else really.

A great cake! It’s super easy to make and really delicious. If you’re like me and you like a strong vanilla flavour, doubling the amount of vanilla makes it taste even better. I have also substituted the cinnamon for half cinnamon and half nutmeg to make it taste a little more Christmas-y. Just a note: you definitely need to both butter and flour the pan. It also rises quite a bit so make sure you have an adequately sized Bundt pan.

Does this contain any coffee at all?

I have made this recipe probably 20 times over the last 2 or 3 years and I always get compliments when I make it. That being said, I have literally never made it in a tube or bundt pan because it always looks like way too much batter for such a pan. I always make it in a 9x13 glass pan and it always spills over the sides

Loved it! Very moist and delicious. Be sure to butter and flour your pan!

Simple coffee chocolate cake recipe that’s covered in chocolate buttercream and topped off with espresso ganache and chocolate chips. Perfect for birthdays!

If you are fond of chocolate and coffee and love a caffeine-kick, stop what you are doing and make this chocolate coffee cake!

It’s SOOOOO good, super rich, moist and tastes absolutely heavenly!

The coffee flavor in this cake is coming from strong black coffee that was used in the cake and espresso powder that was used in the ganache. I didn’t add any coffee or espresso in the frosting because it became a bit too over-whelming.

I know there are lots of components to this cake and it may seem intimidating but honestly, all the steps are simple and straight-forward.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Don’t skip any component of this cake because everything is needed to create the best overall flavor.
  • Espresso powder is not the same as coffee granules. Espresso granules dissolve in liquid whereas coffee granules do not. You can find espresso powder in the coffee aisle at most grocery stores.
  • Don’t replace buttermilk with whole milk because buttermilk is key to creating that ultra soft and moist texture of this cake.
  • Don’t worry if the batter is thin. You have done nothing wrong! That’s just the way it is supposed to be.
  • Use good quality vanilla extract. Trust me, it makes a difference in your baked goods!
  • As always, don’t over-mix the batter because that yields tough cakes.

What&rsquos a cake without some frosting?

My homemade buttercream frosting is a delicious way to top the best chocolate cake.

If you are a true chocolate fanatic and want double the chocolate, I would go for chocolate buttercream frosting instead.

If you really want to play up the coffee angle, why not try using a coffee buttercream?

I have even paired this cake recipe with chocolate ganache and salted caramel to make a Double Chocolate Salted Caramel Cake.

Chocolate cake and crumble garnish

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Grease 3 (8-inch) round cake pans, and line the bottom of each with a round of parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl using a hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing until each is incorporated. Add the vanilla and mix to combine. Beginning and ending with the dry ingredients, add the flour mixture and coffee separately, a little at a time, and blending well after each addition.

Divide the batter among the prepared cake pans and place in the oven. Bake the cake layers until each is puffed and set, and a skewer comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes, rotating halfway through for even baking.

Cool the cake layers in their pans on a rack. If not using right away, unmold and cover the cooled cake layers tightly with plastic wrap the cakes will keep, covered, for one day at room temperature and up to 2 months frozen (thaw before using).

To make the crumble garnish, trim each cake layer so it is about 3/4-inch thick. Crumble the trimmings onto a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Grind the trimmings in a food processor to attain a fine, even crumb. This makes about 6 cups crumble garnish, more than is needed for the remainder of the recipe.
