      This cake is for chocolate lovers. I substitute 6T of cocoa and 2 T of vegetable oil for the baking chocolate. Just add the cocoa to the dry ingredients and and the extra 2 T of vegetable oil to the other 1/3 cup. It works out great and costs less.

      Wonderful and addictive! It really fills the need for "something chocolate-y" when you need it! Easy and quick to make and I love that the chocolate chips on top not only bribe my kids doing whatever I ask of them (!) and that they make it easy to pack up in lunches without a sticky icing. Stayed moist for 3 days - as long as it lasted in my house. My whole family give it 5 stars! : )

      You have to love recipes like this one. It freezes well...and the chocolate chip topping makes it easy to pack in lunches and carry along to picnics. I originally got the recipe from Taste of Home and have made it many times. Thanks for posting! : )
