So I gotta say that I love easily accessing recipes online! Perfect in a pinch! With either a laptop or ipad on the kitchen counter, that's all one needs to get things going!... and ingredients of course! ;-) It seems that so many recipes I look up are at... http://allrecipes.com. Every recipe i've tried from here has turned out always at 4-5 stars in my opinion! And this was todays wonder that got a 6 year olds 2 "thumbs up"!
What better thing to do with a kid after school but engage them with learning and participating in baking a home made chocolate cake... with icing of course! From picking what to make, to making a list, shopping for the essentials and measuring n' mixing. Such a healthier alternative that will stay with them their entire lives; other than letting "sitter telly" do all the work! I think its important to have that personal connection with them and to food! Much different than buying a cake out of the box or pre-made from the bakery. Passing on teachings of healthy, sustainable lessons my Nana passed onto me; with love.
Chocolate Whipped Icing.
make sure you let the cake cool before icing! Was perfect in time for an after dinner desert. The pre-dinner treat was filled with cake batter remnants and the covenant licking of the beaters! lol... in our case... the whisk.
SERVE WITH A GLASS OF MILK OR SUBSTITUTE & ENJOY.
Before I knew it the day was over! ...
