Chocolate Choco Chip Cake

“Chocolate Cake”, the name itself is enough to bring a smile on anyone’s face. This cake does not need an introduction or any kind of explanation. It is chocolate and that’s plenty.

Last week it was my husband’s birthday and we decided to bake a chocolaty chocolate cake. Oh yes “We”, he helped me!!! To have the melted chocolate touch in the cake, we added chocolate chips and believe me it was the best part as in each bite we could enjoy the moist chocolate. For decorating it I got the colorful sprinkles and they definitely made the cake look gorgeous. If you plan to bake this cake then go for your choice of decoration or keep it plain and simple. 

Below are more images to grasp the moist and detailed look of the cake.

Baking tip: If you’re using ceramic baking pan then pre-heat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit or 180 degrees celsius. I used a metal baking pan.

To make it egg less: 1 egg = 1 tbsp of ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp water. Let it rest for 5 mins before adding.

  9. Gently fold the tossed chocolate chips
  10. Pour the batter into the greased pan. Bake for 35 to 38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean
  11. Let the cake cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, then take it out and let it cool down for another 10-15 mins on the cooling rack
  12. While cake is cooling, make the icing. Heat a pan on low flame. Add butter, chocolate chips and vanilla extract. Keep stirring until they are fully melted
  13. Spread over cooled cake and your Chocolate Choco Chip Cake is ready.
