Why I Love This Recipe

This is another family recipe and story

This recipe was given to me by a friend years ago and has been a family favorite ever since. I made it lots of times when Peter’s parents came to dinner because it was also a favorite of his dad’s.

Ingredients You'll Need

6 tablespoons soft butter
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon sugar
2 eggs
1½ cup unsifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1 package (6 ounces) semi sweet chocolate chips


Mix butter with 1 cup sugar until blended. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in flour with soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Blend into creamed mixture. Mix in sour cream and half of the chocolate chips. Pour into greased and floured 8x8 square baking dish. Scatter chocolate chips on top and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

This was delicious and easy to make. Greek yogurt was a successful substitute for the sour cream. Thanks for giving my family a new favorite.
