Chocolate Cake Done Right

The animals are all doing fine and I am almost ready to give Mike the joy of doing all the chores. I just can’t quite get myself to stop yet. I still have 4 weeks until the baby is due so I am trying to “take it easy”. So for the next little while I suppose I will do some baking and get some meals in the freezer so after baby is here I won’t have to do much cooking for a little while. Not that cake is a meal or will end up in the freezer, but it’s a good place to start.

I know what you’re thinking, pregnancy craving and your favorite version of chocolate cake. Well, your wrong about the craving, if anything I would like a cake doughnut with chocolate frosting and sprinkles, with a big hot cup of coffee and not having to share either one. (The little boy seems to like coffee and doughnuts just as much as I do these days. It’s our Sunday treat.) As far as your favorite chocolate cake this probably isn’t it but it just might change your mind.
