Cream Filled Chocolate Chip Crumb Cake

Nancy Johnson


The crumb mixture and cream filling recipes are just enough to make this one layer cake. The picture supplied was of a cake baked in 8 inch pans, but you should use 9 inch pans for the best results. (I couldn't find my 9 inch when I decided to bake this time.)

I seriously can't decide which of the many layers are my favorite. I love the filling, the cake flavor was delicious and the crumbs kind of give it sort of a crunch. Everyone will be asking you for a second slice of this cake! The Test Kitchen
