It's raining cats and dogs out there ...
Can't do any yard work ...
I could do some housework ...
But I'd rather play around and do some scrapwork ...
This is my Great Niece, Summer ~ she is also one of my sister Cheryl's Grand Loves:
This is my daughter Sara and her fiancee Don ~ the one's getting married in August in our back yard:
I baked! A homemade from scratch Buttermilk Chocolate Cake with a can of cheaters frosting, Betty's coconut pecan ~ sorry the pictures a little blurry...
I was drooling and holding the camera at the same time and taking the picture wasn't an easy task. lol But I thought you'd enjoy seeing it Jack and Shirley ... especially you Jack. I even wrote down the recipe as I was making it just in case you want to go out and get the ingredients and surprise Shirley with a cake.
Buttermilk Chocolate Cake
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease up a 9x13 cake pan.
In a pretty good sized bowl mix together:
2 cups of sugar
3 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Then add the wet ingredients:
1 cup of buttermilk
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Pour it into the cake pan and bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when poked into the center. COOL>> FROST AND ENJOY!!
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
