OK so today I made wacky cake from a recipe that my brother's first mother-in-law gave me (he's on #3) I haven't made this cake in years! Well the structure is really really good and the flavor is excellent. Color me shocked this cake hasn't even been on my radar. I didn't mix in the pan, just put everything in a bowl and beat until smooth with my 50's era Dormeyer (Kitchenaid was busy making pizza dough).

Hmmm, we'll see how this cake ages over the next couple of days, I have a feeling that it will only get better.

I can tell you it is better on day two.

I've never had one make it to day three!

Hope it works out for you!

LOL

I've found that with all of the recipes I've made that I prefer them on days 2-3, they slice prettier and they seem more moist with more balanced flavor.

So this morning I got up and made the Eagle Brand Chocolate Chip Cheesecake for my grandson. It will be a surprise. No reason other than the last time I made it almost ten years ago, he has been telling his mother he wishes I would make another one. So I did. Only I made the larger version this time. (Boy is it heavy!) My problem is (even though it is out of the oven) I had it wrapped in foil and was going to place it in a water bath. I didn't have a pan big enough for the water. I considered putting a pan of water on the lower shelf. Would that have made a difference?

Now I just have to wait until my daughter is up and I can get his phone number to tell him to come and get it. Or better still, I might just show up at his door with it. Yeah. That is a better plan.

Now I just have to go back in the kitchen and clean up.
