My Hubby's Chocolate Chip Camping Cake
60 mins (prep 25, cooking 35)
13 ingredients
1 servings
This is the cake my husband's mother would make for him every July on their family camping trips which was also his birthday. He and his siblings LOVED it. It has a secret ingredient..dates! Makes it moist and toffee-like and you have NO idea they are in there. There are similar recipes on here, but none just like this showstopper. I recently got the recipe from my sister in law Deb and she said "I know for a fact none of the other sibs knew there were consuming dates-sweet irony." I told my hubby, "your favorite childhood cake has dates in it." He said "No way, there is no dates in it." Too funny. Made for a recent family son scarfed down 3 pieces and of course, neither child tasted the dates..the next generation is hooked! Great with vanilla ice cream.
