Review This Recipe
It was OK
This cake was OK, but I have definately had/made better. One thing I would change is to not sprinkle the chocolate chips over the batter before baking, because there is nothing like biting into a peice of cake thinking it will be nice and smooth, and then having chocolate chip chunks get in the way. I thought they would have melted a bit, but they didn't. Also, the icing was good, but it tasted more like cream cheese than anything else. I don't think I will make it again. But it wasn't awful or anything, just not what I was looking for.
