Prompt: Chocolate cake recipe


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

2 cups granulated sugar

6 large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour two 9×13-inch baking pans and line with parchment paper.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture, mixing until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips.

4. Transfer batter to prepared pans and bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
