another cake

I was very displeased with the overly complicated cake I tried to make for my birthday. Partly because I am famous for reading only half the recipe and finding myself way in over my head when actually making the recipe. Usually the result of this is that I totally half-ass the recipe and make a gross version of what was supposed to be amazing. I’m not even sure that was the case with the cake I tried baking for my birthday. Mostly I think I wouldn’t have like it even if I had done it right. I ate it. I mean it was, afterall, my birthday cake…but it left a longing for some really yummy cake deep in my inner being.

Thankfully, today, when I looked at one the blogs I frequent called Angry Chicken…I found this recipe for a very simple and quick cake that looks just like what I am wanting. It is currently in the oven with three minutes to go. I believe my longing will soon be fulfilled.

      It was so good. I used the frosting recipe on the back of the hershey’s cocoa…made a half batch of it with less sugar than it calls for so it was a darker chocolate frosting! Yum. I think next time I make it I will just do vanilla cake…sans the cinnamon. (or keep the cinnamon and do a maple frosting!?!?) Oh I wish you were nearer!
