This is an incredibly moist and rich tasting chocolate cake even without the chocolate chips! To get an intense chocolate flavor, I instead added 1/3 cup of coco to the batter. The cake had a wonderful texture and no real hint of the yam flavor. I frosted with Kittencal's chocolate buttercream Recipe #89207. For a chocolate lover, this was heaven on earth! Thanks very much for posting!
