When this chocolate chip cake is paired with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup, you can pretend you are paying big bucks for cake in a fine restaurant.
The chocolate chip cake I’ve been making since before 1995 – and have recorded many a time. So many celebrations! This is a recipe my friend and former co-worker, Marva Bickle, shared with us all.
This is also an easy recipe to let children in on the action. Because, really, all you do it pour all the ingredients in together, then mix it up. Simple success.
This is a recipe I added to that red-and-white-checked I’m Writing My Own Cookbook that my mother wrote out in her own handwriting and gave to me soon after I was married. Thank you, Nana!
