I finally had a weekend off with nothing do but a few fun things. It has been such a relaxing one consisting of pool day, baseball game and sleeping. It was a beautiful (and scorching HOT) weekend here in NC and looks like it will not be cooling down anytime. All I hope is that the Tomato plant makes it through! I have been putting it in the shade to let it cool off and keeping a close eye on the soil dryness. Just pray it makes it through!
The recipe that I have for you today is an oldie but a goody. When I was a kid I would ask my mom to make this in place of a birthday cake because it was my favorite! Mom would never hesitate to do this because it was the cost of the ingredients to make it! Better than having to buy a cake that is for sure (and it tastes a lot better)! One year I even made it for her for her birthday. It is such a good cake that turns out chocolaty yet a smooth finish on the taste.
