A house divided

Jory loves this cake.  It is one of his absolute favorite desserts I make.  In fact, once I made it for a potluck and he didn't know I had done it.  He was sitting at the Potluck devouring this cake and raving about it without knowing it was my Chocolate Chip Cake.  I personally don't think it's that great.  I was going to remove it from my recipes until the Potluck incident when I realized how much he really loves it.

The recipe does not call for frosting.  It says that the cake does not need it and that is actually true, but it seems weird to me to take a cake without frosting.  So if I am taking this to someone or to a dinner I ice it.  I have made a Cream Cheese frosting and a Milk Chocolate one.  They both worked fine.
