I wanted to try this recipe because it is similar to a cake my late grandma used to make when we were kids. I made it for a get-together with some friends. I took the advice of another reviewer and paired it with some good vanilla ice cream. I normally don't care for cake and ice cream together, but this combination is heavenly! Everything about this cake is good, and the crunchy sugar on top is a real plus, too. Everyone seemed to really like the cake. The main difference between this cake and my grandmother's is that this one had more chocolate chips. My adult daughter had a piece of the leftovers and she thought there were too many chocolate chips on it, so that is something to consider. The only things I did different from the recipe are that I used 1 cup of pecans, instead of 1/2 cup, and I may have inadvertently added a little less flour than what is recommended (but I think that may have worked in my favor because the cake was extra moist). This is a great cake and if you do have leftovers, try heating a piece up in the microwave for 15 seconds or so~ yum!
