Spring Holiday Chocolate Chip Cake

Today I was wondering just what to share in this Easter weekend post. 
Let us first rejoice and celebrate the death and glorious resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! 
Where would we be without Him?
So, what are your plans for Easter Dinner?
My friend, Jan, who is an amazing baker, sent me this recipe this morning. Knowing that, when it comes to making incredibly delicious desserts, Jan nails it every time, I asked her if I could share it with you. 
She was delighted! 
If you were wondering what to make for Easter dessert, this might be just what you were looking for.
