Cherry Chocolate Chip Crinkle Cakes. A childhood favourite.

I loved crinkle cakes as a child. We received a terrific nostalgic response from perfecting and posting our recipe for the Gumdrop version We have been trying out new versions to share with you since then.

These tender moist little cakes are terrific with just glacé cherries but as the kids suggested. “Everything’s better with chocolate chips” and I didn’t argue.

Red Glacé Cherries can easily be replaced with chopped fresh or frozen cherries if you like.

I shared these with a few co-workers and they absolutely raved about them. What a perfect lunchbox treat.

 

Dark Chocolate Chips, to melt and dip the biscotti

Dark 50% cocoa chocolate chips are my favourite in this recipe but you can use milk chocolate if you prefer.

Hi there! Would it work to bake this in a loaf pan or a regular round cake pan? :) Thank you!

Just wondering if you have tried these using maybe chopped pecans instead of chocolate chips? I'm not a fan of chocolate chips except in cookies.

Far smaller than that. It's a single pan like a muffin pan. The cakes are about muffin sized.
