Ingredients of the chocolate sponge cake with chocolate chips:

6. Get your cake tin ready. I have used one that is square and made out of glass, but you can use whichever one you prefer or have at hand. Line it with parchment paper and pour in the mixture. Tap the base of your cake tin on your kitchen counter to get rid of any bubbles.

7. With the leftover chocolate chips, sprinkle them over the top to decorate. Bake the cake for 20 to 30 minutes (the time depends on your oven, so start checking it after 20 minutes). Before you take it out, stick in a skewer, toothpick or knife until it comes out clean. It might be smeared with chocolate as the chocolate chips will already be melted, but this is okay! What you have to look out for is raw cake batter.
