  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups flour

Instructions

  • 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.
