Chocolate Cinnamon Snack Cake

Rich chocolate cake with cinnamon makes for great snacking! With the crunchy cinnamon & sugar topping this cake is perfect for transporting & makes for no mess travel. I just like to have it on hand for grabbing a chunk as a snack!

You can see the top is frosting free but has a topping you make with cinnamon, sugar, & cocoa then dot with butter! This cake is  serious snack cake! You could leave off the topping & frost with your favorite frosting, but if you need a cake to take on a picnic or an event the no mess cinnamon sugar topping is the way to go besides I love the crunch it adds to the cake along with the extra cinnamon boost.
1 Cup Shortening
1 Cup Sugar
3 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Sour Milk ( you may take 3/4 cup regular milk & add enough vinegar to make a cup to use as a substitute for sour milk)
2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Cocoa
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Cup Mini Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Cinnamon Baking Morsels
Beat shortening, Add sugar & beat again. Add eggs & vanilla & beat again. Stir all the dry ingredients together except the baking chips & morsels, you will stir them in last. Now add 1/3 of the dry to the creamed mixture & beat. Add 1/3 of the sour milk & beat. Continue with the rotation until all is incorporated & creamed very well. Now stir in those baking chips & morsels. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray pr grease with shortening. Flour lightly. Spread batter in the pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix up the topping.
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Heaping Tablespoon of Cocoa
2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon
Stir all together. Sprinkle over the top of your unbaked bake. Now dot the top with pats of butter using 5 Tablespoons all together evenly distribute over the top of the cake in about 1/2 teaspoon dollops, you don't have to be precise on this. Now bake for 45 minutes or until cake test done with a toothpick inserted & when it comes out clean with no wet batter your snack cake is done. If you insert the toothpick into a chocolate chip or cinnamon morsel do not let that fool you into thinking it is wet batter! Let cool then cut & SNACK! This is a GREAT CAKE!
