From an old Betty Crocker cookbook. I changed it just a bit. I chopped the nuts finer so they do not burn on the tips and it needs to cook a bit longer than the recipe states. You cut in the chocolate to get a swirling effect. Yummy.

Ingredients

    3/4 cups milk

    2 tbs melted butter
  • ·
    1/3 cup semisweet chocolate pieces, melted

How to Make Chocolate Swirl Coffee Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees. Grease a square baking pan.
  2. For the cake, mix together the baking mix, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tbs melted butter, egg and milk. Spread in pan.
  3. Melt the chocolate and spoon it over the batter. Use a knife to cut through the batter several times to create the swirl effect.
  4. For the topping mix the nuts, coconut, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tbs melted butter. Sprinkle over the top of cake.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. This is the instruction on the original recipe but I find this doesn't usually work well. It usually is not done at this point and I turn it down to 350 and bake another 10 to 15 minutes until it's done. Turning it down helps to keep the topping from getting too brown.
