April 3, 2011

Ahhh, April is here! Spring is in the air and Easter is a few weeks away. April is both my sister Jackie’s and my Aunt MaryJane’s birthday month. My Aunt MaryJane is quite the character and always gets us laughing. Year’s ago, she “stole” our Aunt Cookie’s chocolate cake recipe. Aunt Cookie was famous for her “famous” chocolate cake that was so moist that you really didn’t need to put frosting on it. Of course, it is better with frosting 🙂 She would not give out the recipe because she said if she did – she wouldn’t be able to make it as well any more. Well, the story goes that my Aunt MaryJane was visiting Aunt Cookie one day and copied the recipe without Aunt Cookie knowing. Aunt MaryJane then spread the famous “Aunt Cookie’s Secret Chocolate Cake” recipe to everyone and even sent it to the Concord Monitor to print. It is a delicious cake.

Aunt Cookie’s Secret Chocolate Cake

2 c sugar
1 tsp salt
2 c flour
1 c cocoa
2 tsp soda
2 eggs
