Review This Recipe
This is a great recipe! Moist and flavorful. I used vanilla extract and next time I will use almond because I think it could have used a little more flavor. As with everything, I have difficulty keeping the choc.chips floating in the cake. They all sank to the sides and bottom. I'd like to know how to fix that. Other than that it is a great recipe and I will make it again and again even though it is not incredibly healthy...it's good!
