Build Season Recipes: Week 1

This is the second post, of a series of posts, related to the delicious baked goods eaten at the lab. We love baked goods and yummy foods. In response to this, we will be posting the recipes of some of the treats brought to the lab. The second recipe is a delicious (and questionably nutritious) way to start off the season.

This delectable cake is specially formulated to enhance the prototype-making areas of the brain, so that's what we snacked on this past weekend.

Chocolate Chip Cake

  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 3 eggs

  • 3 cups flour

  • 2 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
