Cinnamon Chip Coffee Cake

At the beginning of the month, we shipped out a few packages containing some of our favorite kitchen tools as well as our Gygi Cinnamon Baking Chips. And it has been so fun to see all of the fun and creative ways our friends are using our specially made ingredient in their own kitchens. We have to say, our favorite thing to do with cinnamon chips is to take a classic recipe and glam it up just a little. This is exactly what Chelsea of Priceless Bakes does with her Cinnamon Chip Coffee Cake.

This is a nostalgic recipe made modern with little bursts of cinnamon flavor from the decadent batter to the delicious crumble topping. It is basically cake for breakfast, which is something we can definitely get behind. And we are huge fans of anything with streusel! Adding the cinnamon chips to the crumble topping as well as to the batter took this dish to a whole new level. And topping it with just a little bit of drizzle has us swooning. Delicious! Thanks again Chelsea, for sharing! We are so excited to make this in our kitchens and can’t wait to see what you all think about this cinnamon chip coffee cake.
