Debi's notes:

This may be made as a loaf or in a Bundt & I have also made them as Muffins regular size as well as "mini" size
This is a great recipe, super easy, with a heavy pound cake like texture. Great to use for Tea's and brunches or just to have around the house.
Awesome with Pecan's too, and if you don't want the chocolate substitute for raisin & nut. It's an amazing Recipe handed down from my late Mother. We've been making it for over 40 yrs. Please enjoy Dolly's Chocolate Chip Cake!
