- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup canola oil
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda

- Pour into a lightly greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with chips. Bake at 325° for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cover loosely with foil during the last 10-15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack.

I love the taste of this cake. The problem is I can't get it done without burning the bottom. I have reduced the baking temp. and it still burns. Not a cheap cake to make. Unhappy.

This is absolutely the BEST cake I have ever made. I did omit the butterscotch chips and used a caramel frosting and it turned out super!!! I will definitely make this many times.

I had the same problem. The edges where the cake is cooked is delicious, but I've tried this several times, even increasing the bake time to an hour and a half, and nothing has worked. I might try using a 15 in. pan?

When I made this cake, it bubbled over the sides and the middle didn't bake within the 40 minutes. It also stuck to the sides of my pan. Not sure where I went wrong?
