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.

Very nice and easy. I didn't use the choc chips and I used Kirsch, 2T, instead of almond flavoring. Baked for exactly 45min.

Made this for my mother's birthday and it was a hit!The almond flavor in the cake was so yummy. I baked it in 2 9 inch pans and it took about 30 minutes. I used canned chocolate frosting between the layers, then covered the whole thing in dark chocolate ganache. Topped it off with a bit more pie filling, piped a border of frosting to hold it in, then added stars of frosting around the pie filling and topped each star with a whole almond. It was beautiful! I will be making this again.
