    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.

    Read the reviews enough to conclude it might end up being a bit of a heavy cake. Noting the amount of brown sugar, this didn't surprise me. So wanting to make it a bit lighter but keep all the original ingredients, I did equal amounts of caster sugar (or granulated) and dark brown sugar then added about 25g more butter and whipped those ingredients until it was really light in colour and fluffy. After adding all the other ingredients, I folded in 1 whipped egg white into the mixture. Baked in a Bundt cake tin. Sprinkled powdered (Icing sugar) sugar over it once cooled. Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. Will definitely make it again.  -  20 May 2018


    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)
