Our grandson is turning 15 this week and I got to make his birthday cake. He is such a good kid and of course, I adore him. Anyway, I looked in the pantry and found no cake mix. Ugh,,,so I poked around on the world wide web and found this chocolate cake recipe.
The Only Chocolate Cake Recipe You'll Ever Need!
Well, I checked the reviews and decided to go for it. After all, it had been a long time since I'd made a cake from scratch. It was a moist and delicious cake. I could have just dusted it with powdered sugar and it would have been enough. I did frost the cake with a chocolate-peanut butter icing recipe I found since the birthday boy loves Reese's cups. I made mine in a bundt pan but you can use this recipe for a sheet cake or layer pans. If you make this cake, have no fear at the thinness of the batter it's supposed to be that way and is probably why it was so moist.
I know you've noticed the candles. My mom has a few numbers and if we don't have what we need we are totally fine with home-made numbers. Maybe that should be one of the "you might be a red-neck" jokes. If your birthday cake has numbers drawn on paper and taped to a candle....your whole family just might be red-necks!
Blessings from the holler yall....
