My Grandmother is German, and I can't say I've ever had this cake ... I feel so cheated not to have had the opportunity to try this years and years ago. I've made this twice in the last week. I absolutely love it! Goes great with French Vanilla Ice Cream. No additional chocolate needed :) This will be my go to cake from now on! Will never make a box cake again!

Absolutely wonderful recipe. Easy to make and ingredients that I always have on hand. The batter for this cake is very thick. The first layer is easy enough to spread, but I would recommend for the second layer to drop spoonfuls evenly over the first layer to make it easier to spread. This was so good that I made it twice in one week. I took one to work and it was gone before lunch. I took the second one to a Stampin' Up workshop and everyone there loved it too. I had at least a dozen people ask me for the recipe. Made for April 2011 Aus/NZ Swap.

This was delightful and very easy to make. Its texture is more of a coffee cake (and it goes perfectly with a cup of coffee). I made this exactly as posted, except I ended up not using all of the remaining sugar/cinnamon mixture on the top of the cake (I was afraid it would be too sweet). It was perfect for me. I hope you share more recipes from your grandmom's recipe book, because this one was a winner! Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

Very easy and delicious! The cake texture was so light - something I didn't expect because the wet and dry ingredients were mixed all at once rather than separately. I'd certainly make this again! Thanks morgainegeiser.

This went so fast at my house I didn't get to take any pictures! lol I did sub homemade yogurt for the sour cream and I believe because I did this - the batter was runny. I think if I used sour cream it would have been thicker and prevented the chocolate chips from falling to the bottom. My family thoroughly enjoyed this cake though. I used mini chips instead of regular size. Made for the August 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.

What a yummy cake! I used milk chocolate chunks (small) because I didn't have the chips. I will make this again, it was so easy to make and the results were wonderful! Thank so much for sharing! Made for Swizzle Chicks and ZWT6.

Great cake! Almost like a coffee cake! I could certainly see serving this for breakfast or brunch. And the cake is tender, with a spicy-sweet ribbon running through (cinnamon and chocolate!) the middle. I may make this, to take on vacation, as it will make breakfast easier for at least a couple of days! Thanks for sharing, morgainegeiser! Made for ZWT.

Talk about being moist, and chocolatey!!! Yummy to the extreme!!! I love how the chocolate chips held their form but then just melted in your mouth as you take a mouthful!!!
