This cake always comes through in a pinch. It's quick, moist and chocolaty, and pairs perfectly with some ice cream for an easy, sweet tooth satisfying dessert. I had some leftover icings in the fridge from some other goodies I had made and this cake provided the perfect opportunity to use them up. Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Why not?
1 cup butter
1 cup water
¼ cup cocoa powder
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup sour cream
Combine the first three ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Combine the dry ingredients with a wire whisk. Add to the cocoa mixture and stir. Then add the sour cream and stir until smooth.
Bake in a non stick sprayed 10 x 15 inch pan for 20-25 minutes or until cake is done to your preference.
These are not the traditional icings that go with this cake but they worked and it was scrumptious!
I spent the day today on the truck with my husband (and even remembered my camera this time!☺) This is something we both enjoy occasionally. They have a few developments they deliver propane to that are a bit further away so I've been going along when he goes there. It was a bit chilly but a gorgeous, sunny day. I'll share a few pictures of the day with you.
I know Turkey Buzzards are not beautiful but if you think about the great service they do for humanity, saving us from all manner of harm and disease, they become a bit more tolerable. And I liked how he looked against the sky as he went gliding by.
Doing his thing. As big and clumsy as these trucks look, he is a pro at handling that thing. I don't think I'll be trading in my spatulas any time soon to drive his trucks.
And here is a beautiful (unedited) reminder of His presence with us after some tough news this week.
God has a plan and He knows what He's doing. We don't doubt that for even a minute!
We trust Him!
