This is one of my very favorite cake recipes. It is so soft and fluffy. I like making it for birthdays and decorating it with chocoate icing.
- Beat butter and sugars together.
- Add eggs and vanilla.
- Mix flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
- Add dry ingredients to the batter and mix until well blended.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Spread dough into a 15 1/2 inch round pan.
- Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
SilFerWolf, I think that you will find that the bitterness problem will be solved by using the baking soda instead of baking powder. It does make a difference in how your baked goods turn out.
This was perfect! It was very sweet, especially since I iced mine, but very good. I left out the cream of tartar and added a box of vanilla instant pudding. I cooked it on a 15 inch pizza pan lined with foil which I used to bring up the edges of the pan. I'm glad I did or else this cookie would have been all over the oven. Thanks for sharing. I'll be making this again.
Warning, this is so delicious and very very rich! I made this for my nephews birthday and iced it with chocolate frosting and decorated with smarties. It was a bit too sweet for me with the icing but the kids loved it. If I was making it for adults I think it would be heavenly with whipped cream mounded on top. I used a 12" springform pan to make this and it worked out well.
