I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it sure sounds good to me! It's from one of my 3 favorite cookbooks, The Best of Mennonite Fellowship Meals.

Thanks for posting. Incredibly easy to make. Was looking for a recipe w/o brown sugar or butter as my cupboard is bare but I was craving a treat. Like the other reviewer said, the chips sunk into the cake as it cooled. Mine also turned out a bit burnt on top but was only in the oven for 40 minutes. Weird.
