Last week, my youngest boy was in need of some serious mom time. I can always tell when it’s coming. He follows me around the house a little more (along with our dog, making it feel like I have a small entourage) snuggles a little longer at bedtime. During Thursday night’s bedtime snuggle I told him I had a cake that I was wanting to bake…would he want to help? The way his eyes lit up told me his answer. The plan was set. After school our cake baking would commence.
This cake is a one bowl recipe, one of the best kind, in my opinion. It is moist and slightly sweet, and especially delicious when made with your child (mess and all) and topped with a dollop of whipped cream.
