Now This Just Takes The Cake...!
Actually, I guess that I should have said that "This is the cake!"
Yesterday was my mom's monthly sewing circle group. The ladies all come over, visit and swap tales for a while, and sometimes they actually get some sewing done! They all bring something for lunch, and all the group sits around and has a nice visit!
I usually go over and help the ladies get their stuff out of the cars, hold the door for them since some of them are on walkers, and talk to them a bit before they get started doing their thing!
One of my Mom's friends asked me if I would give her a review on a new cake recipe she had tried. I get a LOT of request like that, because all the ladies know how much I like food...especially cakes. This one just happened to be chocolate! I liked it already, and I haven't even tasted it yet!
"It's a healthy recipe", she said..."and it has no oil, or egg, or water, or milk!"
I was a bit sceptical, but I tried it and WOW...it was really good! Moist and very good! The beauty of this cake is how easy it would be to make during a storm, or as a comfort food made just out of our preps! Ready for this?
1. One chocolate cake mix
2. one can of pumpkin
Mix together and bake per instructions! How easy is that? No water, no eggs, no oil...now THAT is easy!
I have been taste testing this cake since before they had lunch yesterday...and in fact, she left me half of it when she went home! Very, very good!
Something like this could be made with pumpkins grown at home, I'm thinking! You don't taste the pumpkin at all! In fact, it taste like any other great tasting chocolate cake I've had! You really ought to try this one...and if you don't like it, then just send it to me and I'll finish it off for you!
Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit outside...I'll get you a piece of cake! That is...if there's any left!
