A rich, dense, easy to make single layer chocolate cake.
Servings: 6 slices
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- whipped cream (optional)
- fresh berries (optional)
Preheat oven to 375F. Line and grease one 9-inch round cake pan.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, corn syrup, and chocolate chips. Stir until melted and smooth.
In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add chocolate mixture slowly. Add flour and mix just until combined.
Spread batter evenly into the prepared 9-inch pan. Bake at 375F for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Let cool 5-10 minutes, then turn cake out onto a cooling rack to continue cooling. If desired, serve with whipped cream and fresh berries.
