Well, one evening I was hungry. And craving. For cakes. Hungry and craving doesn't goes along that well, because you simply lost some brain cells to control your rationality.
It was raining. And that made me even more hungrier. So I took out some butter and 30 minutes later I already whipping up some batter for a cake. To my surprised it only took less than 45 minutes from preparation to cleaning. While waiting for the butter, I chopped the pecans, measured everything and once the butter has warm a bit to room temperature, I just mix everything, in ease.
This cake definitely became one of my favourite coffee cake. Remember this? This cake was even better! The cake was super soft and to my surprise even with the odd combination of chocolate chips and cinnamon, it does tasted that goooooooooood!
Eat it when it is till warm. You will fell in love with it instantly. But mom told me the nuts were a bit sweet but I thought it was still ok because I reduce the sugar by 1/2 cup.
