I am a coffee cake FANATIC. Especially when it has a crumbly topping. And especially when that crumbly topping has chocolate chips. Whenever I see that option at a bakery…I can’t resist. It is like pure happiness. And I totally love that “coffee cake” is a key word for “it’s okay to eat cake for breakfast” and people can’t judge because coffee cake is totally a breakfast food. So on those mornings I wake up craving coffee cake (and yes, that does happen) I go right to this Chocolate Chip Crumble Coffee Cake and it start my day off really, really well.

This is a combination of mine and my dads favorite coffee cakes. I love a dense, chocolate chip filled coffee cake, and my dad loves a light and fluffy cake with a crumbly topping. So. This is the best of both worlds.
