  Extra Notes  
This recipe came from the Kellog company so many years ago that they can't even find it in their files anymore. I lost the pamplet containing the recipe for years & wrote asking for it about 5 years ago. They replied that they had no record of such a recipe but sent me a new pamphlet containing some other ones including almost the same recipe only it used applesauce and didn't have the chocolate chips!
This is a heavy moist cake that goes over well at pot luck and family dinners.
