Dolly’s Chocolate Chip Cake
This delicious recipe has been generously shared by one of our Lovefoodie supporters, Debi Garwol.
There’s a wonderful story behind many of the recipes Debi shares. Who may you ask is Dolly? Well, Dolly is Debi’s Mom, who used to spend many hours in the kitchen with her children, teaching them how to bake wonderful things.
Before Dolly’s passing, she typed up all her recipes so they could be shared with her family, and it is with a huge honour that Debi has kindly shared her Mom’s wonderful recipe with us all, Dolly’s Chocolate Chip Cake, and also a photo of her typed up recipe. It was Dolly’s intention that her recipes be shared and made over and over again for the enjoyment of all, so we hope that Dolly will be most proud that we have shared her recipe here, with the entire world! Thank you Dolly and Debi for sharing a part of your home.
So please enjoy Dolly’s Chocolate Chip Cake.
