Chocolate Cake

I’ve been trying various recipes from Hungry Jack, and this is one of them. It’s an easy to prepare chocolate cake baked in an 8 inch square metal pan and topped with chocolate mousse made with melted chocolate, a little bit of syrup, and freshly whipped cream. The cake part of the recipe was pretty […]

Chocolate Cupcake

I hadn’t planned on posting a recipe today, but I came home from an afternoon meeting to find Fuzz baking cupcakes and listening to music. Rather than break her flow or dive in and try to help, I told her I was going upstairs to use my treadmill and to let me know when the […]

I vaguely remember the cake from childhood and am thinking my mom […]

So if you don’t make the cake, at least […]

Ding Dong Cake

Years ago I made a cake inspired by the Ding Dongs. I don’t remember much about it other than the filling was made with flour, sugar and Crisco and that the end result really was better than it sounded. Given that I’m on a retro cake bender, I looked for the Ding Dong cake recipe […]
