Make My Batter Better

The children heartily approve of the cake batter for Bette Hagman’s gluten-free Chocolate Pound Cake. The mixing bowl, beater, and spatula have been licked clean with much gusto. The cake is in the oven; I was afraid of the pan being too small, but apparently gluten-free cakes rise less than their counterparts.

I’m a little dubious about the chocolate chips, as I like my chocolate evenly dispersed in the batter rather than in little melty dribs and dabs. Still, it is chocolate, and it is a cake, so Marcus should be quite satisfied on his birthday tomorrow.
