I would add a little lemon Zest to this recipe! The lemon puddiong mix is not quite enough zing.


Making a chocolate dream

Making a chocolate dream

One day I forgot to let my chocolate cake completely cool off and put a can of classic chocolate icing on top by accident. I totally thought that I had messed up my cake but I found a new way to make this cake different. By only letting the cake cool off for 30 minutes, putting the icing on top of it and letting it set for 10 minutes I created a cake that was warm, gooey, and tasted like that molten lava cake you get at a restaurant. It was even better the second day after I warmed it back up in the microwave. This cake was so good that my whole family loved it. If you are wanting something different then try this trick out.
