Chocolate Surprise Cake

This is such a fun cake to make! Adults and children just love it. It's moist and light, and will taste great with chocolate or vanilla frosting. It's similar to a marble cake, without the swirling, and the chocolate batter is made differently than any other marble cake I've ever made.
