As written this cake is really high in fat and calories. I made a few minor changes to healthify it and it was still OUTSTANDING! I used non-fat sour cream rather than regular, and substituted 1/2 cup applesauce for 1/2 cup of the oil (so 1/2 cup of each). I also used a cup of Egg Beaters in place of the 4 whole eggs. I only used 1 cup of chocolate chips because that was all I had. It was served to a group of very health conscious adults (who rarely eat dessert). A few tried it and raved about it, so pretty much everyone ended up having a piece. Several had seconds! The cake was really, really moist and very chocolately. I think if more chips had been used it would have made it too, too rich. I drizzled on a basic glaze flavored with almond extract (1/4 cup melted butter, 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp extract, and about four TBSP skim milk all whisked together). It was perfect! Note - vanilla extract could be used instead.
