Packable Chocolate Chip Cake

 Packable Chocolate Chip Cake
I used this easy recipe frequently when I made brown-bag lunches for our children years ago. This recipe doesn't call for frosting, so slices travel well. Sour cream in the batter makes each piece deliciously moist. You're sure to enjoy this recipe.—Barbara Hofstede, Waukesha, Wisconsin
