2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup boiling water

  1. Heat ove to 350 and prepare 2 9-inch baking pans (round or square) with a flour based nonstick spray.  
  2. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. (see photo idea below for prepackaging these ingredients)
  3. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla and beat on a medium speed for about 2 minutes.  
  4. Stir in the boiling water and pour into the prepared pans, dividing batter in half.  (batter will be very thin)
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool for about 10 minutes and then remove from the pans to cool the rest of the way on a wire cooling rack.  
  6. Frost when cake is fully cooled. (see recipe for frosting here)

The dry ingredients go first...
so it just makes sense to package up a few batches
 to make this faster and easier in the future!
Yes...it is supposed to be THAT runny!
THE hardest part...letting it cool until it is time to frost....
The jars are my cake mixes and the bags are my frosting mixes.
I LOVE having these on my pantry shelf.
And not JUST so I can have my cake and eat it too!
They are great go to items to package as gifts...
wedding basket / housewarming gift / hostess gift

  7. If you want to find a suitable summer camp that will give
    the right care and supervision for kids with Down Syndrome,
    then you will need to locate a special camp that caters for
    children with mental retardation. None of those individual traits matter so much as the sum of the
    whole together. I said good bye to my room mates, and they looked
    like "Where the Heck are you going. Focus on the basic approach of the workout to guarantee progress for all team members, while having fun. It also keeps it cool, which feels refreshing on hot, sweaty skin. Camping could be the greatest adventure that any family could enjoy in summer days. This will benefit your kid to perform well in school. Students in the summer art camp program will learn about color mixing. With older students, if you conduct the camp in French as an immersion class, they will learn the language much faster than they otherwise would. Hockey players who play in the NHL also spend time playing in leagues all over the world.
