Welcome to my site!
I'm Cindy, and I love to cook! And, I love to eat... hence the size of my rear end! I come from a long line of cooks. My great great Grandmother was a cook in the original Harvey Houses. My grandmother Julia was an awesome cook, and my mom was incredible. I owe my skills to these great women. Especially my Mom who said this to me about making gravy... "Cindy Lynn, wallpaper paste is wallpaper paste & gravy is gravy. Never the two shall meet!" Shall we say my first experience at making gravy left a little bit to be desired! Thank the high heavens my cooking skills have improved since then! Enjoy!

Easy & Delicious Chocolate Cake

This recipe is incredibly easy – and it adapts to any type of cake you would like to make. I use the basics of this recipe for my Lemon Cake. I use Lemon Pudding in the Lemon Cake, chocolate pudding in chocolate and vanilla pudding with all other cake mixes. No fail, guaranteed, every time! Deliciously moist and wonderful!

1 boxed chocolate cake mix, I use Devil’s Food
1 box instant chocolate pudding
4 eggs
¾ cup water
¾ cup oil

Ganache Icing:

12 oz Package of chocolate chips
Heavy Cream


Mix all cake ingredients in mixer, or with hand held electric mixer. Approximately two minutes to thoroughly blend all ingredients.

Bake time according to cake mix directions on package. I usually bake in a bundt pan at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

After cake cools, warm a little bit of heavy cream in a saucepan. About 1/3 cup. Pour chocolate chips into warmed cream and stir until melted. If needed add a little more cream. You want the mixture to be thick, but not like fudge. But, also not too thin because you want it to cling to the cake and not run off all over the cake plate.

Let cool, slice and enjoy!

Great tricks! I love recipes like this that take some help from the grocery store, and still make it your own. No one would ever know you used a mix. Looks perfect! =)
