This is my Mom's recipe and it's the best version of sad cake I've ever tasted. People just love it and there's never any left.
This cake is very moist and rich.

How to Make Melba's Sad Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat 350* F
    Grease 9 x 13 x 2 inch pan with oil or Crisco.
  2. In medium bowl add biscuit mix and brown sugar, blend out lumps.

    Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each, add oil and mix.

    Stir in extract and pecans. Pour batter into the greased pan.
  3. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top.

    Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
