#BundtBakers ~ Six Pound Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake


You can see all our of lovely Bundts by following our Pinterest board. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about #BundtBakers, can be found on our home page. Our lovely hostess this month is Lauren from Sew You Think You Can Cook and she chose the theme of Cinnamon!

I had sticking issues this month - I didn't remember to flour my pan before adding batter so there was a decent chunk of my cake that the top didn't want to come loose. Sigh. There is so much sticky yummy brown sugar in this cake that it really wanted to adhere to the pan and not let go. I had about 1/3 of the cake that looked pretty good still - so you get some photos of that part of the cake!! I will definitely be attempting this cake again and better prepping the pan because it is really delicious. It is very much coffee cake like in texture and flavor and has the added bonus of lovely chocolate chips throughout. The brown sugar creates quite a crunchy crust along the top and bottom of this cake, and is gently swirled throughout the actual cake as well. It created a few pockets in my cake as well as it baked! I love the texture, moistness, and density of the cake.

Apparently this cake weighs approximately 6 lbs when baked - hence the name. It is 6 lbs of yummy!

And don’t forget to take a peek at what other talented bakers have baked this month:

Six Pound Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake from Broma Bakery

For the cake:
1 cup vegetable oil
1½ cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
12 ounces sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1½ teaspoons salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the filling:
1 cup medium/dark brown sugar
1½ tablespoons cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease and flour a large bundt pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the oil, sugar, sour cream, eggs, and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Fold the dry mixture carefully into the wet ingredients until everything begins to come together.
  4. Add the chocolate chips to the mixture, then continue to fold until just combined. Be careful not to over mix - some lumps are ok.
  5. In a medium bowl combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. 
  6. Pour half of the prepared batter into the well greased and floured bundt pan and smooth using the back of a spoon or a spatula. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture over the batter and swirl gently into batter using a fork. Pour in the second half of the batter on top and swirl the rest of the brown sugar mixture into it.
  7. Bake for 55-60 minutes in the preheated oven until a knife comes out clean when inserted into the cake. Allow to cool in the bundt pan for 10 minutes, then invert onto a plate.


  1. Oh no! I'm sorry your cake stuck, but what was left of it looks great! I love a good cinnamon-y coffee cake. I was just talking to a friend the other day about how people don't make coffee cakes anymore and when I was younger they were everywhere! It might be time they make a comeback!

  2. Don't you just wanna kick yourself when you do things like that? I almost forgot the baking powder in mine this month. Fortunately I caught sight of it sitting there before it was too late. Never mind because your cake is still lovely and I am sure you had fun eating the delicious sticky bits off the inside of the pan.

  3. Oooh Rebakah, so sorry to read that your cake got stuck. Mine did too in December but it was a thousend pieces, so no photo and no recipe. Your piece looks absolutely delicious, I am sure the recipe is a great one!

  4. That is very frustrating but your photography did a great job and the cake is lovely. Pound cake but 6x better!!

  5. All the chocolate!!! Yum!!! It makes up for the sticky situation!

  6. It's such a bummer when the cake sticks to the pan! I'm so happy that it turned out delicious though...that kind of makes it all better, right? :)

  7. Don't worry looks completely delicious.

  8. Oh no, I hate it when cakes stick, all the matters is how the cake tastes and I can see from the photos that it was one delicious cake. Laura@ Baking in Pyjamas

  9. that's a crappy situation to be in, but I'm glad that it taste great because that's the most important part, right? it looks delicious!

  10. Ah, I hate it when that happens--bundt cakes are so tricky to get out of the pan. best of luck with your next attempts, because it sounds delicious! :)

  11. Your bundt is six pounds of awesome. Sorry it stuck, but instead of looking like it stuck it looks to me like someone could not resist grabbing some because it smelled so good when it was baking.

  12. You know I love a coffee cake! So glad you brought this to the table this month, and were able to salvage enough to photograph - though I'm sure it was all eaten!

  13. I hatet when cakes stick to the pan too! But you know what? Crunchy brown sugar is totally worth it! Sounds wonderful!
