I can’t believe I missed national chocolate chip day which was the 15th of this month. Better late than never, I put together a couple of different ways, other than a cookie, to use chocolate chips.
Dark Chocolate Chip Skillet Cake
- 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 cup chocolate dark chocolate chunks
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In an 8-inch cast iron skillet or other heavy pan, melt 1 stick of butter over medium heat.
- When butter is melted, add the granulated sugar and brown sugar, and stir to combine. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
- Beat the egg, and add a small amount (about 1/4 cup or so) of the melted sugar and butter to the egg mixture (to temper it) and whisk to combine.
- Pour egg mixture back into the skillet, and stir until completely combined.
- Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Carefully stir to completely incorporate the dry ingredients.
- Add vanilla and chocolate, and stir to combine.
- Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
- Serve warm.
Banana Coconut Chocolate Chip Snack Cake
This delicious snack from Snack 52 is a delicious way to mix chocolate, bananas and coconut.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 large eggs (lightly beaten)
- 2 cups dark brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 10 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp fine or flaky sea salt
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 handfuls shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)
- Heat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Mash bananas in a bowl and set them aside.
- Add the eggs, dark brown sugar, vanilla, and coconut oil in a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt. Add the flour mixture to the wet banana mixture.
- Stir until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and coconut. Stir one last time to evenly distribute them.
- Pour batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle sea salt to lightly dust the surface of the cake.
- Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean.
- Allow to cool on a wire rack before slicing.
What could be better than chocolate? Hmmmm … I would have to say not much! I have a bunch more chocolate chip recipes that I will save for a later time.
