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
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil


1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Butter and flour three 8-inch cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the butter and sugar on medium speed until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, mini chocolate chips, milk, and oil.

4. Pour the batter into the prepared pans and smooth the tops. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of one cake comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.
