Chocolate Coffee Cake Dixie


Streusel Topping

Chocolate Coffee Cake

  • 2 cups minus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour*
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cups Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup + 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons vegetable/olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup lukewarm or cold brewed coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Line bottom and sides of an 8 x 8-inch or 9 x 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Prepare streusel by combining flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Pour in oil and rub together until crumbles form. Set aside.
  4. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt together. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips and set aside.
  5. In a bowl large enough to hold all ingredients whisk oil and egg together. Add coffee, salt, and vanilla.
  6. Add dry ingredients and chocolate chips and mix briefly, mixture should look undermixed.
  7. Scrape batter into prepared pan and cover with streusel.
  8. Place in over for approximately 32-35 minutes (slightly less if using a 9 x 9-inch pan) or until light golden brown and center bounces back when lightly pressed with a finger.
  9. Once cake is removed from oven sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips.
