Step 2

 There is no need to separate the wet ingredients from the dry ingredients as everything should mix together very easily. If you’d like, sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top of the cake batter.

 I recommend starting with 60 seconds, then adding 8-15 seconds if the cake looks like it still needs more time.
