We had a really relaxing weekend watching General Conference. It's one of our favorite weekends of the year. The weather was a little bizarre, snow followed by sunshine, followed by snow. But we enjoyed ourselves all the same. I made this chocolate cake for dessert after our Sunday roast. The kids and I gave it "2 thumbs up" so I thought it was worth sharing.
Here's why I like it: it's easy to make, uses ingredients you already have in your pantry (it doesn't use eggs so it's even Vegan), makes a small enough cake that you're not tempted with left overs, it's surprisingly moist, and it's a great recipe to have in your food storage.
Here's what I don't like about it: it's not super chocolaty. For some people this might be a good thing, but I was thinking after I made it that it would be a good cake to put some extra chocolate chips in, or chocolate frosting on. It has a similar taste to Texas Sheet Cake minus the frosting. It's really worth a try, and a good recipe to have.
I saw the recipe on my new favorite Cooking Show, Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn (Hallmark Channel). I recently added her to my DVR and am loving watching her cook. Her kitchen (set) is gorgeous, and she just seems like the nicest lady, and very down to earth.
