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. Read More

Been looking for a good recipe for awhile and this wasn't it. Yes it tasted of chocolate but that's about it the 'cake' part was completely unimpressive. I had to compensate by putting a layer of caramel between the layers and then topping the whole thing with ganache. Those additions were great but I'll keep searching for a "GOOD" chocolate chip cake recipe. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

This cake for one thing is very rich. I wouldn't recommend using anymore chocolate on it ie: frosting or filling. Instrad I just used vanilla frosting on it and it turned out great! Read More

I'm torn between giving 4 or 5 stars. It was very good but a bit heavy on the baking powder. It affects the taste more so as leftovers. I made a simple icing (2T butter creamed with 1 c powdered sugar then whisked 2 T milk into it) which worked well. Served it with vanilla ice cream. I would like to try it again with less baking powder. I'll try to remember to edit this review after I tinker a bit. However I do think this was a good cake and did not taste "healthy" despite the wheat flour. I got compliments from family & guests! And that's why I voted 5 stars instead of 4. Read More

After reading other reviews I made some changes to this recipe. I decreased the amount of baking powder to 2 tsp and added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the dry ingredients. I baked it in a bundt pan and buttered and cinnamon-sugared the pan instead of butter and flouring it. This posed a problem as half the cake stuck & I was going to take a picture of it to put on here! I used Ghiradelli dark chocolate chips chopped up-- it was delicious! Read More
