Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake

Chocolate Crumb Cake@NancyCSometimes you can tell just by reading a recipe that it’s going to be good. That’s how I felt about this recipe when I saw it in an old cookbook from the 80’s, the Nestle® Toll House® Recipe Collection. I first made it several years ago for a breakfast gathering and everyone gave it a thumbs up, so you’ll have to make it and see for yourself how good it is! You can serve it at brunch or for dessert—I think it tastes great any time of the day!

CHOCOLATE CHIP CRUMB CAKE from Nestle® Toll House® Recipe Collection

Makes a 9×13″ pan                                                     Chocolate Crumb Cake@NancyC


  • 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
  • 1/2 cup  (from a 12–oz. package) of Nestle® Toll House® semi-sweet Mini Morsels (you’ll use the rest of the chips in the batter)


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups Nestle® Toll House® semi-sweet Mini Morsels (the rest of the morsels from the 12-oz. package)

For Topping:In small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, and butter; blend well. Stir in nuts and 1/2 cup mini morsels. Set aside.

For Cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13×9″ baking pan. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In large bowl, combine butter, sugar, and vanilla; beat until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add in flour mixture alternately with the sour cream and mix well. Then fold the remaining mini morsels into the batter. Spread batter into the greased baking pan, and sprinkle the topping evenly over the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. (The original recipe said to bake the cake for 45-50 minutes—mine was definitely done in 45 minutes). Cool completely and cut into squares.
