Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!
My neighbor Sarah shared this recipe with me years ago for Cake Mix Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake, and I’d forgotten just how yummy it was until I made it again over the weekend!
My girls helped me mix up two of the cakes for the baby shower we hosted, and it was just perfect. One of the guys couldn’t believe I actually made it myself, and my kids have been fighting over every last morsel.
I’m telling you what, I know you should be out making all kind of Memorial Day recipes this weekend, but this is a no-brainer-gonna-be-perfect-I-promise-your-family-will-love-it cake to make too. Here you go . . .
