S'mores Coffee Cake

This delicious, moist coffee cake is loaded with chocolate chips, toasted marshmallows and graham crackers in the filling. Can you think of a more delicious coffee cake. Not me, I love this recipe.
I have S'mores on my mind because we are going to Lake George and every night we have S'mores. I am bringing all of the stuff to make the S'mores but I am also making this coffee cake for the morning. This is another great recipe when I found it, loved it ever since..

  • 1/4 cup  butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil 
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup graham crackers crumbs
  • 1 cup greek yogurt or sour cream but yogurt preferred 
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 12-14 big marshmallows, cut in half
  • Topping If Desired: 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 2 Tablespoon heavy cream
  1. Heat the oven to 375F.
  2. Line an 11X7" baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl add the sugar, butter and oil. With the paddle attachment on, beat on low speed until combined.
  4. Beat in the egg, scraping the sides of the mixing bowl with a spatula.
  5. Alternately, stir in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, graham crackers crumbs with the greek yogurt. Mix until just combined.
  6. With a spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.
  7. Spoon the cake batter into the prepared pan and bake in oven for 24-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Remove the cake from the oven, place and arrange the marshmallows on top of it.
  9. Place the cake under the broiler and bake for a few more seconds until the marshmallows are puffed and slightly brown. Just a few seconds so watch..
  10. If your oven does not have a broiler, remove the cake from the oven after 25 minutes, top with marshmallows and bake for an additional 5 minutes. 
  11. If desired: In a small microwave bowl place 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 2 Tablespoons heavy cream and melt for 30-50 seconds stirring often and until melted. Drizzle over cooled cake and let set, if desired.
  12. Let the cake cool completely then slice.
