on our first valentine's day together
i tried a new recipe
a fudgy chocolate cake
slowly cooked to desire.
as it baked in the kitchen of my condo
chup was down decorating my car
with all sorts of funny valentines.
(sometimes i miss dating.)
we had lunch and lounged around
then ate the cake.
it was so very good
thick, warm, and really chocolatey.
it's been a tradition ever since.
i've posted the recipe before
but never on this blog,
so here it goes:
1 package chocolate cake mix
1 container of sour cream (8 oz)
1 cup chocolate morsels
1 cup water
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 package instant chocolate pudding mix
spray crock pot with nonstick cooking spray.
mix cake mix, sour cream, chocolate morsels, water, egss, oil
and pudding mix in a bowl by hand.
pour into crock pot.
cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours.
i know some bake this cake more conventionally
but i like the smell of cake
in my kitchen for an afternoon
(by the time it is done cooking
my salivary glands are begging for taste.)
i also like how easy it is to bake
and how fun it is to scoop it out of the pot.
this time i substituted chocolate chips
with chocolate truffles--
it just keeps getting better . . .
(as does the relationship.)
