Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Zaney1

I got this recipe out of a magazine at work. I liked the sounds of it because it uses a pound cake mix. I haven't made this yet. The streusel topping recipe is in the body of the cake recipe

This is a nice moist cake recipe. I'm not sure if I like the topping as it had a bit too much butter so I had to add more flour and it just did not seem to set up like a good crumb topping. But (there is always one of those...) this is still a very tasty recipe. I think next time I'm just going to make it a chocolate chip pound cake and forget the topping! Thanks for posting.
