First, thanks for all the car candy stories! It sounds like that Orbit “mint mojito” gum is a favorite. I’m not supposed to chew gum, really, because of my TMD (temporomandibular disorder), but it couldn’t hurt to taste it, right?
Anyway, I have really been a lazy bum. I have not been knitting or sewing or doing much of anything except passing out in front of the TV. And in keeping with my lazy ways, yesterday I searched for a one-bowl chocolate cake recipe, and I think I found a winner: the One-Bowl Chocolate Mocha Cream Cake. The recipe is from Cooking Light and uses mayo and coffee as the moistening agents. The cake came out quite fudgy and chocolatey, so the fluffy, whipped cream-like mocha frosting paired nicely with it. It’s definitely a keeper! The recipe makes a 13 x 9-inch cake, so it’s pretty large. Unless you’re serving a big group of people, I would suggest maybe cutting the cake in half and frosting just that half (since the frosting has a whipped cream base, you can’t really leave it out overnight), or maybe going with a more traditional frosting would work? I’ll have to try that next time!
