The chocolate chips sank to the bottom of the came despite me coating them with flour. I couldn't taste the coffee either so maybe I need to add more. Still a nice cake though - 22 Jan 2016


This is a fab recipe without the choc chips. It goes down very well at the church coffee mornings!!! - 24 Jun 2015


It's a nice cake quite moist but I found all the choc chips sank to the bottom and I followed the recipe. Maybe next time I will coat them with flour first to see if this helps. - 07 Sep 2014
