Excellent recipe: moist as can be, and chocolatey. I used milk chocolate chips since I'm not a fan of semi sweet chocolate, and it came out terrific. This is a keeper.

I like apple cake. I like chocolate cake. I'm not too crazy about the combination.

My mother has made this cake for years at Christmas time. You can't find a richer, moist cake in the WORLD.
