This is a public apology to my co-worker Liz, who repeatedly berated me for putting baked goods in the break room for all to try rather than in the hallway where my team sits for first dibs.
I admit, the motive behind my action was that I wasn’t going to take credit for this particular cake. It’s good, but nothing monumental, and edibles tend to disappear into a black hole of calories in the break room. However, I can’t lie to Liz, and she asked me point-blank if I’d made the cake, so I had to come clean. She then beat me swiftly about the head and shoulders with a cane switch (metaphorically speaking, anyway).
So, for Liz, I present to you One Pan Chocolate Cake part Deux, from one of my favorite and most ridiculous cookbooks, the Marlboro Country Cookbook.
Incidentally, I think this might have all been a cleverly executed ploy by Liz to get a second dessert dedicated to her in a week. A tip of the KitchenAid to you, Liz. Well played.
Here is the recipe. I’m being incredibly lazy this morning.
It’s so moist and fluffy, it won’t even stand on a corner. Super easy, super fast. Totally worth trying (did I just make my cake sound like a conflicted hooker?) If you would like a printable version of the recipe, just ask. I’m not THAT lazy.
