"This cake is simple and easy to make. The batter is thick and the chips do not sink to the bottom of the pan. So if yours are sinking, then the batter is too thin. I mixed it as long as the recipe said so the pudding thickened it up. It's pretty rich. I did use milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet. I do not like the bitterness of semi sweet. I think it'd be a good cake to experiment with different chips and add in's with and plan to do so next time. The kids love it and compare it to a brownie in flavoring. Definitely making this again and again. :)"

"Did not add chocolate chips to the cake, but topped cooled cake with ganache (1 cup chocolate chips and 2/3 cup whipping cream heat over low heat, stirring constantly, just until chocolate is melted). Turned out perfectly. Served it to company and it was enjoyed by all.

Would also be delicious with whipped cream or ice cream.
Perfect when you need a cake in a pinch and don't have time to bake one from scratch."

"This cake has never failed me! For extra decadence, I glaze the cake with a chocolate ganache and sprinkle with Heath toffee bits, shredded coconut, crushed peppermint candy, or sprinkles. Any way I top it, the result is fabulous! Thanks for posting such a great go-to recipe!!"
