Place all the dry ingredients for the cake base in a mixing bowl (save a few of the chocolate chips to sprinkle on top) and combine, add the wet ingredients and grated carrots and whisk until it's a smooth batter.
Oil the baking pan lightly or line it with a parchment paper and pour in the cake batter. Now is the time to sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top.
Bake it in the oven for about about 35 minutes. Test with a wooden stick, if it is baked through.
