This cake's one I prepare frequently for Sunday dinner. I also make it for church meetings and to take to friends who are sick. It goes a long way—unless you have some real "chocoholics"! I've been cooking as long as I've been married, for almost 30 years. My husband's the director of a Christian youth missionary organization, and our two children are 19 and 17.

"Looks delicious! I don't have enough butter, Can I use shortening?"

"This cake was fabulous and everyone loved it! I used slightly more chocolate chips than the recipe called for, and I recommend it. I will definitely make this cake again!"
