Before I share this delicious recipe,
I wanted to thank all of you for your support for our sweet friend Stacy.
For those of your who missed our Facebook post,
Stacy is Camille’s neighbor and she is battling terminal brain cancer (Astrocytoma Glioma).
She is a wonderful mom to three beautiful children and although her time here on Earth is limited,
we want to try and make every day as comfortable and happy for her as possible.
The 5K race that we held in her behalf was a smashing success and we were able to raise almost $2000 for Stacy and her family!
If you are interested in reading Stacy’s story or helping or donating,

Also, for those who were able to attend, here is a fun slideshow of the day:
I LOVE chocolate cake . . . especially when it’s made from scratch!
However, I hate doing dishes.
And some cake recipes call for so many separate bowls for mixing different ingredients . . . why would I do all that extra work?!
One Bowl Chocolate Cake
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk*
1 cup hot water
Frosting (my favorite is mom’s chocolate frosting)
Sprinkles (completely optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Mix in the oil, buttermilk, and eggs. Once the eggs are fully incorporated, pour in the hot water and mix well (your batter will seem runny, but I promise that it will work out!).
Grease a 9×13″ baking pan and pour batter into pan. Bake for 33-38 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean- mine was done at 33 minutes). When the cake is completely cool, top with frosting and decorate with sprinkles (if so desired).
*Don’t have buttermilk? No worries! It’s simple to make your own!
