Chocolate Surprise Cake

A wonderful for any occasion...

This is such a fun cake to make!  Adults and children just love it.  It's moist and light, and will taste great with chocolate or vanilla frosting.  It's similar to a marble cake, without the swirling, and the chocolate batter is made differently than any other marble cake I've ever made.

This, too, is a very old recipe and I'm afraid I can't remember how I came to have it, but, I'm sure glad it's in my recipe box, because I couldn't find this version of it anywhere. 

My hubby's been asking for chocolate cake (he gets those cravings) so I figured this was close enough.  He really enjoyed it and said he was so happy I made it.  You can make someone you love happy too!  It's not a hard cake to put together and it shows the "love" all over it!


1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 1/4 c. flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. chocolate syrup
Heat oven to 350°F.   Grease and flour 2, 9" round cake pans or 13x9" pan.

Gradually add sugar to butter in bowl, creaming until light and fluffy; add eggs and beat well.
