"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!!"

"We made this cake for my mother in law's birthday. We have a huge family get together and every family member loves it. We folded chocolate chips in half of the batter and dark chocolate & mint chips in the other. The dark chocolate & mint chips was super popular and gone in no time!"

"Have made this cake numerous times. This is my "go to" cake when I need a dessert. I always have the ingredients on hand, and only takes 5 mins to put together - though it does take approx 1 hr to bake. I have added mint chocolate chips or raspberry flavored chips to add a different flavor. I do spray the pan well prior to pouring the mixture into the pan. When the cake is done, I set the timer for 10 min, then flip the cake out of the pan. It always comes out cleanly if I flip it at the 10 min mark."

"A good cake, but I would not bake it to serve company. Part of the cake stayed in the pan when I tried to remove it. Maybe that's because I used mini chocolate chips. It was good to serve at home, but again, I would not serve it to company. My husband said it was a little too fudgy."
