Does everyone have favorite measuring devices? I have some plastic ones but LOVE my metal ones and always use those if they are clean. For this recipe I used the 1/2 cup, 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp and 1 Tbsp.
Oh. I forgot about Zucchini brownies. Maybe I should have taken some of the free zucchini from the fruit stand this morning and made a batch of those up too! For now - the Crazy Cake will have to do. I also kept some butter out to soften to make a batch of sugar cookies. I was reminded of them when I read the newsletter to my old guild in Vermont and will make some heart shaped cookies tomorrow for the kids to decorate up with Daddy tomorrow night. The blueberry buckle cake on this page is from me and very yummy too! Now the hard part..... waiting for the cake to cool before making the sugar frosting for the top. I can't wait until after dinner to try some with a nice glass of milk. The smell of chocolate in my house is wonderful!
Roasted veggies and Italian sausage penne pasta is on tap tonight. I see a nice glass of moscato wine with my dinner tonight.

1.5 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 Tbsp cocoa

1 cup water
Mix together. Put in a greased 8 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Let cool.
Sugar frosting. Bring to a boil 1 cup sugar, 2 Tablespoons butter and a little milk to dissolve. Boil without stirring until a soft ball forms in cold water. Take off heat and stir until it starts to harden. Pour onto cake. Enjoy.
