Edit: One of our readers pointed out a left-out ingredient in this recipe–1 cup of sugar! It’s now on the recipe card. Thanks, Tykeh!

This is a family favorite as well as a tradition that I always bring this cake to my beginning quilting classes! Recipe origin unknown.


  1. I tried to make it….but there is no sugar in the first part of the ingredients to cream the butter with…..can you tell me how much sugar. Thanks!

  2. I am so pleased that you posted this recipe. My mother used to make it with chopped walnuts in the chocolate chip mix, but she has Alzheimer’s now, and I thought that my chances were slim of finding the recipe now.
