Chocolate Chip Spice Cake

"I made this by playing with a basic quick bread/cake recipe that my mother taught me when I was about 10. She used to flavor it with anything she had on hand: oranges, chocolate, pureed carrots or just plain vanilla with pecans to name a few. It's very moist and is a friendly companion for your morning coffee. I'm not a fan of frostings but you could frost it if you like."

Ready In:
1 cake




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients except the sugar and set aside. In another bowl, cream the butter with the sugar. Add the eggs one by one, mixing well after every addition. Add the vanilla and mix well. Start adding the flour mixture, 1/3 at a time and alternating it with the milk, beating on low so that it incorporates smoothly. Pour the chocolate chips in and mix them in with a spatula or spoon. Pour batter into a greased cake pan and bake for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted n the center comes out clean.

  1. The flavor of this cake was good, but I had some difficulty with the recipe. It was partly my fault since I forgot to set my timer and may have over-baked it a little. All of my chocolate chips sank to the bottom of the pan and stuck there when I removed the cake. I suspect that the batter was over-mixed, as I followed the directions to mix after almost every addition. I also found the cake to be a little dry, but as I said I may have over-baked it some. Maybe I'll try again with a few adjustments. I do like the idea of chocolate in a spice cake, so thanks for the idea.


I began cooking as a kid with my mom. I cook mostly Mexican food, but my best recipes are the ones that I improvise at the last minute! Especially desserts, which I love to cook, but always forget to write down. I'm a stay at home mom of three kids- 2 boys (3 & 5years old) and a 1 year old baby girl. My husband and I have been married for nearly 8 years. I want to take a moment to thank all of you who have made my recipes and even took the time to review and/or photograph them. I appreciate every one of them! <img src="" border="0" alt="I am alw"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"width=90%> <img src=""> <a href=""><img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
