Easy Chocolate Chip Cake

    This delicious chocolate chip cake is incredibly easy to make. The cake is wonderful as it is, but you can also dress it up, if you wish. Try filling it with a butterscotch filling and topping it with a chocolate glaze.

    I made this for a neighbor kid's birhtday. It was a hit. I did change it a little. I used a bundt pan and baked it for about 45 minutes and instead of greasing and flouring, I greased and sugared. It was just regular white sugar, but it left a pretty (and tasty) crust.  -  25 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This cake was ok. If you really want a chocolate chip cake, then it's a good recipe. I was just not fully committed to the idea. Plus, the recommended frosting didn't work very well, and the whole mess was just TOO chocolate-y. Some liked it. I won't make it again, but that's mostly because I like to try new things.  -  01 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this for my husband's birthday as he was wanting a chocolate chip cake. It's a good cake, but it is rather heavy. I ended up using the Cool Whipped Frosting from this site with it, which worked out well as I think anything else would have made the cake way too rich. It was enjoyed by the whole family, but definitely keep in mind that it's a heavy, rich cake. I think it would probably make good muffins/cupcakes dur to its denseness, but I haven't actually tried it as such yet, so I have no idea how they'd end up baking. I would recommend it as long as you aren't expecting a light, fluffy style cake.  -  17 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
