Prompt: Chocolate cake recipe


2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup roasted unsalted peanuts, chopped


1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8×8 inch baking pan.

2 In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

3 In the butter bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Add the flour mixture in three parts, alternating with the chocolate chips and peanuts.

4 Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

5 Let cool for 10 minutes in the pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

6 Cut into squares and serve.
