    Extremely easy and quick to make. I use chips only on top and bake in 9 x 13 pan.  -  16 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Yummy!! A really good cake. I mixed the chocolate chips in and used a 9x13 and baked it about 30 min. Turned out great, will be making this again. Thanks  -  13 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Awesom! Followed recipe. Then I tweaked just a tab. The nuts and chocolate chips were added in the mixture and on top. Added 1/2 teaspoon cinamon! Baked it in 9" x 13" pan. I am getting ready to bake this again. I have baked it several times, but it always seems to leave! Thanks for sharing!  -  21 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
