Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe with Weekend Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #122!

My blog is best viewed in Google Chrome

Last Saturday I shared a buttermilk biscuit recipe that Amanda and I tried. I've got another one for today that is super easy and yummy. Amanda and I often bake together and I don't share that side of our lives on this blog as much as I could.

It's not going to become my new weekend theme. My weekend posts are pretty flexible. I basically live in the moment.

My recipe is a version of this one by Planning with Kids. You can see my steps by following along with the photos and the ingredients are listed at the end. Amanda (age 7) is doing all the steps, except for one, and I took the photos. She gave me the job to crack the eggs and she took that photo. Amanda can crack eggs, but she doesn't like getting any on her hands.

We baked this cake at night, so the lighting in the photos wasn't always great.
