No-Egg Chocolate Cake

Today we tried a new chocolate cake recipe. Like the Depression era Wacky Cake, this one is made without eggs or butter.  But unlike Wacky Cake, this recipe calls for buttermilk plus a lot more cocoa powder, which gives the cake a deeper chocolate flavor. You can frost it with your favorite frosting, but we […]

Marble Cake

Let’s see. Chocolate cake or yellow cake or both? That’s an easy decision! And it’s why I love marble cake. You get two flavors in one. What’s strange is how seldom marble cake shows up on the dessert table these days. Or maybe it’s just not trendy in Austin? I’m not sure, but it’s always […]

Potluck Cola Cake

Coca Cola

I’m still working my way through the Coca Cola my sister-in-law left behind. Too bad she’s not here, because this was a big cake and we’re having to eat it all by ourselves.  Luckily cola cakes freeze well, so after the cake cooled I cut it into big squares, wrapped it tightly in plastic and […]

Marbled Mini Bundt Pan Cake

Marbled Bundt Cake

Today’s recipe is for people in my secret club. It’s called “The Club for People With 6 inch Bundt Pans”. If you’re not in the club, it’s probably because you like big Bundts and that’s perfectly okay. But for a small family or someone who likes baking multiple cakes, a 6 inch Bundt pan is […]

Three Layer Chocolate Cake With Frosting

Three Layer Chocolate Cake

It’s been a while since I posted a chocolate layer cake, but I promise you this recipe will make up for lost time. It’s our new favorite. At first I wasn’t sure this cake would be worth the time given the array of ingredients (two kinds of flour, both chocolate and cocoa) and the fact […]

Chocolate Pound Cake

Chocolate Pound Cake

Today’s cake was an excuse to use some of the cocoa powder I bought last week at Costco. Next time you’re warehouse shopping, check the baking aisle because you may get lucky and find the 24 oz cans of Rodelle unsweetened cocoa powder for about $7.00. That’s a good price for just about any cocoa […]

Earthquake Cake

I can’t believe it took me so long to try this recipe; and hopefully in years to come I’ll be serving it at potlucks, teacher appreciation events and Girl Scout meetings to make up for lost time. For now, I’m just glad I have a small “Earthquake Cake” to serve tonight. So what is Earthquake […]

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

In case you missed the news, yesterday was not only National Baking Day, but National Devil’s Food Cake Day.  And while I admit to not taking full advantage of the excuse to make a devil’s food cake, I made another type of chocolate cake which was just as good — a mayonnaise cake. If you’ve […]
