Happy July 4th!
Somewhere along the way, I got into the tradition of making some kind of chocolate cake for the Fourth of July. Perhaps Mom made one one time, and it just stuck with me. My favorite cake is CHOCOLATE.
At wallyworld, they had cake mixes & frostings - white cake with red and blue confetti, and vanilla frosting that came with red and blue sprinkles. But I decided to make a CHOCOLATE cake and put the frosting combo on it.
This is a chocolate cake you mix in the pan. You measure the dry ingredients into the pan, then make 3 holes and add vanilla, vinegar, oil and water, then mix it all with a fork IN THE PAN. It's pretty dense, but hey, it's homemade chocolate cake!

Ready to cut a piece of cake for a snack.
Cake and milk, a favorite combo.
