Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 13x9x2 inch pan.


Using an electric mixer, cream 1 stick butter and 1 cup sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in another bowl. Add to creamed mixture, continuing to beat. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and chocolate syrup to batter and mix well. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Just before cake is done, prepare frosting. Put 1 stick butter, chocolate chips, 1 cup sugar and evaporated milk in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Stirring ingredients together, boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla and nuts. Pour over warm cake. Delicious!!
