  • happy birthdayIt's the one on the back of the Hershey's cocoa box. Amazingly moist and doesn't even need icing. I sometimes just sprinkle powdered sugar on it.

  • I make a boxed yellow cake mix and drop chocolate chips in the batter. Then when the cake has cooled, I make chocolate frosting from powdered sugar, a little butter, vanilla, hershey's cocoa, a little warm water, and beat until well blended. I also put a washed "lucky quarter" in the cake. The person who is served the lucky quarter is to have good luck. (Actually he or she is lucky because they now have a quarter, but my sons loved the game.)

  • Lemon Yogurt Tea Cake (from Sweet Savvy, where my favorite treats originate)
    1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
    1 1/3 cups powdered unrefined cane sugar (sold as "organic powdered sugar"), divided
    3 extra large eggs
    2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (2 lemons)
    1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1/2 cup coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
    1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    Grease and flour a standard loaf pan.
    Put the flour, baking powder and salt into one bowl.
    Put the yogurt, 1 cup unrefined cane sugar, eggs, lemon zest, and vanilla in another bowl and whisk together.
    Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk until blended.
    With a rubber spatula, fold the oil into the batter until it is all incorporated.
    Pour the batter into the prepared pan

  • Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a test skewer comes out clean and the cake is browned on top.
    While the cake is baking, mix the lemon juice with the remaining 1/3 cupunrefined cane sugar , until the sweetener is dissolved. Set aside.
    Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for ten minutes.
    Remove the cake from the pan and place on a serving plate.
    Pour the sweetened lemon juice slowly over the cake, allowing it to soak in.
    Slice and serve warm or cold. Nice with whipped cream and fresh fruits.
