This cake is perfect for Fall football and tailgate parties. It's my friend Ami's special cake and we are all disappointed if she doesn't bring it!!! For tailgating we use a 13/9 pan--easy to carry and cut up!

  2. Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips and pecans with mixer, and mix until blended. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into prepared pan
  3. Bake 13x9" pan 40-45 minutes; bundt pan 33-36 minutes. NOTE depending upon your oven, time will vary. Once it tests done, its done! Cool in pan 15 minutes, then on wire rack until completely cool
