Prompt: Chocolate cake recipe


1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour an 8×8 inch baking pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream butter and granulated sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, mixing until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips and heavy cream.
3. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; transfer to a cutting board to cool completely.
