Chocolate Chip Cake- Cookbook Bonanza

I was out most of today running errands. I was passing a small thrift shop that I don't go to very often when I saw a 50% off sign out front. So in I went- I really hit the jackpot on vintage cookbooks and a few recent ones too. I got the following books:

This is an easy recipe from Cooking From Scratch Vol. 2

The recipe is possibly very good but is unreadable in its current format.
