Chocolate chip cake

Chocolate chip cake

It was a Friday evening and I thought I must bake something before I go out, because weekend is the only time I can catch enough light to take good pictures. Considering the circumstances it had to be something fast, easy and simple.

Glass of wine in one hand, mixer in other I then quickly put together this chocolate chip cake that is so simple, yet absolutely delicious. Believe me, “Hangover me” was very thankful for this treat on Saturday morning. It also stores very well in an airtight container so you can enjoy it for breakfast or afternoon tea for at least 3 days.

    • Hi, Farhana! I didn’t have any problems with that as this dough is really thick, but I’ve heard that some people dust chocolate chips with flour to prevent them from sinking.

  1. I made this cake this week and I was really pleased with the results! However, I found that one cup of sugar is 225g, and 2 cups of flour is 280g so you might want to edit the recipe πŸ™‚
