Recipe by Kim D.

I've been making this cake for years, and I always have requests for it when I take it to parties and potlucks. The cake is very moist... you have to try it!

This was a very moist pound cake. I think it tastes twice as good the second day! I didn't try it, but I think that with the chocolate chips in it that it would be great with ice cream. I might try milk chocolate chips next time.
