Since several of my boyfriends like my garden pix, here is a new one for you.
My rose bush (heh heh heh, I said bush) just flowered in all the heat we had this past week. No red hot pokers (heh heh heh) yet; they are running late. Kelly's are probably dead by now.
I am waiting for my pincushion plant to bloom later this summer.
Now for the cake part.
Home made (no box mixes in this house! and no wire hangers either!) chocolate cake hot outta da oven. What's NOT in it? Milk, butter, eggs, high fructose corn syrup, artificial anything, preservatives, additives. You can pronounce all the ingredients and I made this cake for about $1. BOO YAH! Totally vegan! This cake does not last very long around here!
What's in it?
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (e.g., hershey’s)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon real vanilla extract
1 tablespoon white (or apple cider) vinegar
1/3 cup light olive oil (or canola, sunflower, etc.)
1 cup cold water
preheat oven to 350 degrees.
spray an 8 x 8 x 2 square pan with non-stick cooking spray.
dump all ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
pour batter into pan.
- bake 55 minutes until a tester comes out clean. your oven, YMMV.
