You might think, since so far the only recipes I’ve posted here are from other blogs, that I have no recipes of my own. The answer is “No, I don’t.” But how many of us have recipes that we created ourselves? Does that make them any less homemade?
The closest thing I do have to an original recipe is one for an egg-less chocolate cake written in my grandmother’s hand in a cookbook I inherited from her. She calls it:
Janice’s Chocolate Cake
1 tsp sugar
6 Tbls cocoa
3 cups flour
1 Tbls baking soda
2 cups sugar
Sift and mix the above, then add:
12 Tbls cooking oil
2 Tbls vinegar
1 Tbls vanilla
2 cups water
Bake about 45 to 50 minutes in 350 degree oven.
This makes a delicious, moist cake–you don’t miss the eggs at all.
