  1. This cake was extremely easy to make and the kids really enjoyed it. I did not leave it in for the full baking time as it was completely baked in just 30 minutes. I also did not have mini choc chips and used regular ones. I will make this cake again.
  2. Definitely enjoyed the smell in the kitchen during baking. I'd reduce the chocolate chip content next time. Otherwise, delicious!
  3. We had a great breakfast this morning with the crumb cake. I did not have the full 2 cups for the cake so I used 1 1/2 cups and it still tasted great. Thank you for the recipe Erin!
  4. WOW!! really good gooey cake. My Granddaughter made it after school yesterday and we enjoyed it WAY TOO MUCH to be good for the waistline!! Easy and tasty. Thanks for sharing, Miss Erin, I will definitely use it again!
  5. Yummy cake, Erin - I took this to work today for a coworker's birthday, and everybody loved it. It tastes like a big chocolate chip cookie! I am only giving it 4 stars because the topping did not come out like I expected a crumb or streusel topping would. By using melted butter as indicated, the topping was really gloppy (not crumbly) and it sank into the cake leaving holes in the surface (maybe I did something wrong?). Anyway, it still tasted fine, but I was disappointed in how it looked (I ended up making an icing of powdered sugar, a little cocoa & chocolate milk to cover up some of the holes). I will make this again because I'm sure hubby will love it too, but I think I will try using softened butter instead to see if that makes a difference in the crumb topping. Thanks for posting this recipe! -M :-)
