This seriously tempting chocolate cake recipe can be whipped up in 5 mins.
Happy Birthday Freddy.
Yes, it is that time of the year again and Miss M has been chomping at the bits to get baking Daddy’s chocolate cake. As in woke me at 6.30 in the morning asking if it is ‘wakey time’ yet. Dedication right? I managed to hold her off till after breakfast at which point she got out the mixing bowl, the electric whisk and her special apron. A whole 5 mins later one gorgeous smelling and very tempting chocolate cake was ready to go into the oven.
All thanks to Betty Crocker. It was THAT quick and THAT easy to make. It was simply a case of adding a few wet ingredients to the tempting chocolate cake mix and placing it in the oven. We spent more time working out how we wanted to decorate the cake than actually making it. My kind of baking.
I am pleased to say that I’ve been asked to team up with Betty Crocker on their #ICAKEYOU campaign. They want to encourage people to bake and give cakes whenever there is a special occasion. Basically, saying it with an #ICAKEYOU. And I really really agree especially if it is making this easy chocolate cake and definitley when I am at the receiving end of ANY cake.
So back to our kitchen – 25 mins later one tempting chocolate cake comes out of the oven. A little while after that, we decorate it with some equally tempting chocolate icing from Betty Crocker. And the plates came out…….
Happy Miss M.
And happy, happy me.
