Ben’s Chocolate Honey Cake

Eli and Ben were both very busy in the play kitchen today before dinner. Eli was making “salad,” tossing the wooden vegetables into the salad spinner, and then sitting on the plunger to make the thing spin with his butt (I use a different salad spinner).

Ben was making cake, which he presented to me with a flourish, and then offered to write the recipe out for me. I don’t have a picture of the cake, because I was given an empty loaf pan from which to taste, but here’s the recipe. Enjoy!

    OK, you’ve got to love a cake that’s done in 1/2 minute! Mmmmm!

    Reminds me of recipes compiled by his Uncle Larry’s teacher (first grade? I can’t remember!) and distributed to fond parents. My favorite was “gin tannic” that was heavy on the first and light on the second. Hmmm. Fine example in that home!

    I love that it has pepper in it. 🙂
