Is this a cake or is this a cookie? Its both! It has the cookie taste of brown sugar and chocolate chips, and is made with self-raising flour so it rises just like a cake. It only takes 20 mins to make, so you won’t have to wait for very long. Try experimenting using other chocolate chips instead such as white chocolate and dark chocolate. The cream of tartar makes this cake extra moist and tasty. If you’re making this cake for a special occasion why not top with chocolate spread or melted chocolate and finish with sprinkles.
