    Musings: Beatty’s Chocolate Cake

    Our second recipe for September is Beatty’s Chocolate Cake. How did it stack up against other chocolate cakes you’ve made? Did you keep it or give it away?

    How was your experience with this cake?

    The posting date for this recipe is Thursday, September 24.

    September Recipes

    A little late posting this but not without some fun recipes this month!  Oddly enough, we have two birthday girls choosing recipes this month and guess what they both chose??  CAKE!!  The two cake recipes are different recipes but I encourage you to make them both, compare them, mix up the fillings, icings, forms, etc. and if it’s too much to have so much cake at home this month, half the recipes or make the full recipes and freeze some cake, bring them to work, or send them with your spouses.  Don’t feel like skipping here is ok just because we’re making two cake recipes…and I think it would be fantastic to see some comparison posts this month.  So in addition to thanking Susy and Mary for choosing a couple of great recipes, don’t forget to wish them a Happy Birthday too!!
