Need something special for a holiday breakfast or brunch event. Try this Great Southern Living Triple Chocolate Coffee Cake Recipe. Not only is it delicious but the recipe makes 2 square pans so you can give one away and enjoy one yourself. Of course you can give both away!! Another great thing about this recipe is that is uses a cake mix as the base. I don’t think anyone would even know!!
This time I made one Decadent Triple Chocolate Coffee Cake Recipe in a regular square baking pan and the other in a disposable foil container. The ones at Walmart were colored and came with the see thru lids. The prefect gift for a neighbor and friend. Everyone Loves chocolate and this is a great excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast.
The only adjustments for this recipe was I did not have sour cream on hand so I used Greek yogurt which actually makes this a healthier breakfast right? .
Also the baking time was longer than suggested.
Tie the one you are giving away in a cute ribbon and you have the perfect gift that was baked with love.
