Because it starts with a cake mix base it's super easy! It's moist and tasty!

Top Review by Sally Miller

My son, age 21, gives this recipe 5 stars. I don't always have almond extract or choc chips, but the cake also tastes wonderful without. It bakes up perfectly in 9x13 pan. Start testing for doneness at 28-30 minutes. The cake has a firm crumb and does not need iced if eaten as a snack cake.
