After school let out back in the 1960's, mom use to make a quick easy cake that dad loved, he hated frosting.. We always use to sit around the table and this song use to come on the transistor radio, boy was that a long time ago, I was around 10 years old... see if you just may have heard this one along the way. So today being her anniversary death on June 16th 1999, I miss her everyday, I decided to make the cake, play this song as it brought back wonderful memories of both of them, hope you smile a too!
1 stick of butter, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
3 eggs, separated
16 ounces sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
12 ounces chocolate chips (milk chocolate)
Have ready a greased 9-by-13-inch rectangular baking pan. Set the oven at 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar, then mix in the egg yolks, sour cream, and vanilla.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir into the butter mixture.
Beat the egg whites until they hold stiff peaks, then fold into the batter. In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon with the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and the chocolate chips.
Pour half of the cake batter into the pan. Sprinkle the top with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Pour remaining batter on top.
Bake 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Sprinkle with confectionery sugar.
