Prompt: Chocolate cake recipe


1 cup dark chocolate chunks

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 cups sugar

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour two 9-inch cake pans.

2. In a small bowl, melt the chocolate and butter together in the microwave, stirring occasionally, for 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in the sugar and eggs, and mix well. Mix in the vanilla extract.

3. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add to the chocolate mixture, and mix just until moistened. Stir in the milk.

4. Gently fold in the semisweet chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared pans. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
