Leap Into Your Day With My Chocoholic Dream Cake!

What better way to celebrate Leap Day than to jump right into a fun and easy baking project?
I have been making this for years. I used to call it "Day Before Payday Cake" bacause it was a treat I could still make when I had run out of eggs!

Chocoholic's Dream Cake
Make in an 8x8 pan

All can be mixed in an 8x8 pan with a fork-just stir and stir till it becomes nice and smooth...
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together in middle of the pan:
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 c. sugar
1 t. baking soda
3 T. good quality Dutch Processed cocoa
1/2 t. kosher salt
Now, make a little "well" in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in:
1 T. white vinegar
6 T. vegetable oil
1 t. vanilla
1 c. water
Stir, stir, stir. Believe me, it will all become incorporated. Keep at it.
When it's all glossy and smooth, bake for 28 minutes.

*While it's baking, make frosting so it's ready to pour right on the hot cake.
Frosting:
In a medium saucepan, on med heat cook together:
3/4 c. sugar
3 T butter
3 T milk
Cook till bubbles begin to boil, then add 1 c. chocolate chips.
Stir till glossy and smooth. Keep stirring till cake is done. Then pour immediately over the hot cake right out of the oven! Let set up for about an hour (if you can!)
*This whole recipe can be doubled for a 9x13 pan

I have heard both "wacky" and "crazy" cake names for the cake, too. I have completely given up buying the store brand cake mixes! For years I spent money on them while all the time I had everything I needed to create even more flavorful cakes and goodies right in my own cupboard! I used to say the mixes saved me time. Perhaps, but what I gained in time I lost in "homemade" flavor and the joy of knowing exactly what products went into making it. For just a few more minutes of time, you can save money and create your own! :)

I've made a version of this cake for years also - we called them crazy cakes because you didn't need eggs.  But I never added frosting because it is a very moist cake anyway and never seemed to need it.

Sometimes I add chocolate chips to the batter though.
