I had an idea this was going to be good....I just didn't know how good!  When I was finished making the batter, which was gorgeous by the way, I knew the cake portion of this recipe was going to be excellent.  The batter for this cake is thick and fluffy, good grief I loved just looking at it before it was baked!  It's a dream batter and you could use it for so many other flavor combinations.  I have to admit though, the milk chocolate chips, cinnamon and pecan that are in the middle and on top of the cake is PERFECT!!  When you take that first bite of half melted chocolate chips, cinnamon and pecans you think you're in heaven and then comes the soft , moist texture of the cake and it's doesn't get any better than this.  I love this coffee cake, it's got it all!  You need to make this!
