Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
This is really a very good chocolate cake recipe. Ive been really concious about the food I buy and decided that Im not using anymore boxed cake recipes.....the list of ingredients is to much for a cake plus the hydrogenated thanks. The only thing I do is I use 1/2 cup of real butter instead of oil. Ive made the cake both ways with butter and with oil and the butter really makes taste better and it makes it more moist. Thanks Marsha. This is my go-to cake now and Ive made it several times now and I almost know the recipe by hard and it takes no more time that a box cake would. I ice the cake with homemade icing as well. 1 stick of butter melted 6 T of cocoa 1 box of powdered sugar Add a little milk at a time as your are beating all ingredients together to the consistency you want it. Viola, homemade cake and icing, and not an ingredient in it that you cant pronounce!

Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2012
This recipe is so good. I use a 9x13 inch pan or in a muffin pan and I add walnuts sometimes too. Either way it's a hit. Last time I made them i made them as muffins and made my own cream cheese frosting and my guests couldn't get enough of them. I like "cake" recipes that do not use a boxed brand, not trying to be snobby just that I don't want the ingredients I can't pronounce and don't want hydrogenated oils. Cream cheese frosting: 1 stick butter softened 1 block of cream cheese softened 1lb powdered sugar Mix until smooth - this makes a lot - more than you need but sometimes I like a lot if icing anyway! :) Try this recipe!
