I am making sure that I bake with my girls at least once a week this Summer.
We tie on our aprons, thoroughly wash our hands and get to work.
It is math and measuring. It is reading and comprehending. It is together time and it is love.
This week we made Wacky Cake. Possibly the richest and bestest chocolate cake ever.
1 1/2 c flour
1 c sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t soda
3 T cocoa
Mix dry ingredients right in an ungreased 8×8 or 9×9 square pan.
Make a well in the center and pour in..
6 T veg oil
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 t vanilla
1 c cold water.
Mix well til smooth
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes
Cool and frost with this Chocolate Frosting..
3 T Cocoa
1 c Powdered sugar
2 T soft butter
2 T Hot coffee
Mix cocoa and sugar together, add butter then coffee and beat until smooth.
(I suppose if you do not drink coffee(OMG WHY NOT???) you could always substitute milk, but I am not sure I could forgive you.)
The girls then felt it necessary to use sprinkles – and I figured why not, let’s go crazy.
Eat and enjoy. Like, really really really enjoy.
