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.
