READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Girly_Girl_Lori

The smell of this baking makes me think back to afternoons in my Grandma's kitchen. Don't skip the homemade icing. Store bought icing has no place on this cake!

Pretty good cake, but my chocolate chips sunk to the bottom. Easily converted to gluten free using my favorite GF flour mix and adding 2 T of ground flax seed. I also used buttermilk in place of the milk. Will make this again and trying sprinkling the chocolate chips over the top of the batter and gently stirring them in right before I put the cake in the oven. Thanks for sharing.
