Today is National Chocolate Cake Day! Is that something you think you could celebrate?
We celebrated Wednesday with waffles for breakfast this morning, and that has made this day feel very special!
Have you heard of Wacky Cake? I may have featured it on the blog some time ago. Hoping the steps will stay in the correct order with this one.
This is such a simple recipe that I don’t know why I don’t bake it more often! Ingredients are sifted directly into the baking dish; little “hollows hold vanilla, vinegar, and oil; then, a cup of cold water is poured over all. It can be frosted, though we prefer it just like it is, adorned with ice cream! Sometimes I will sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
Anyway, Happy National Chocolate Cake Day! The recipe needs 1 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp soda, 3 Tbsp cocoa, 1/2 tsp salt sifted all together into the baking dish. One Tbsp vinegar in one “hollow,” 1/3 cup oil in another, and 1 tsp vanilla in the other. Pour the water over, stir well with a fork, then bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes! Enjoy!
