Directions

  1. .Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and salt; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the butter and 1 1/4 cups sugar with an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy. Change the mixer speed to medium, and beat in the vanilla extract. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. With the mixer on low speed, alternately beat the flour mixture and sour cream into the creamed mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Beat only until just blended.
  3. For the topping: In a small bowl combine the chocolate chips, pecans, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon to make a crumb mixture. Spread half of the batter in the bottom of the prepared pan. Sprinkle with half of the crumb mixture. Pour in the remaining batter, and sprinkle with the remaining crumb mixture; press the crumbs in lightly so they adhere to the batter. Quickly, but gently cut through the batter and crumbs in an up and down motion with a knife. Lightly rap the pan once against a hard surface, to settle the batter.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes.
