Rich, moist and chocolaty, this scrumptious cake is very versatile. It freezes well...and the chocolate chip topping makes it easy to pack in lunches and carry along to picnics. At home, we like it topped with vanilla ice cream.

I just double the recipe. I reduce to 2-1/4 cup flour and add 1/4 cup cocoa powder for darker color. Pour into 9 in pan, sprinkle about 1-1/2 cup chocolate cip and bake about 40-45 minutes. Its come-out smooth and chocolaty. Become hits on my BBQ time.

Good cake with nice chocolaty flavor. Easy to make, too. I also added coconut and chopped pecans to top along with chocolate chips. Will definitely make again.
