Chocolate Chip Cake Recipe
Recipe courtesy of Betty Crocker's Cookbook
1973 reprint of 1969 edition.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate pieces finely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Heat oven to 350 degree's. Grease and flour 2 round layer pans, 8 or 9 1/2 inches. Measure all ingredients in large mixing bowl. Blend 1/2 minute on low speed, scraping bowl constantly. Beat 3 minutes on high speed scraping bowl occasionally.
Bake 40-45 minutes or until wooden pick is inserted in center and comes out clean. Cool.
Fill and frost with you favorite filling and frosting.
This recipe used a butterscotch filling and a chocolate chip glaze. I instead baked it in a 9" x 13" pan and made a whipped chocolate caramel almond buttercream frosting.
