FOLLOW FRIDAY! and her Chocolate Lover's Cake

This Friday I am posting "Follow Friday!" As I am out visiting blogs, there are some that I visit more. I like to visit a blog that is happy and positive. I love recipes and crafts. I like it when I get an idea of who I am spending time with.

Now for the blog I am following, visit

On my first visit to this blog I saw the family photo. I KNEW I WAS DOING THIS IN THE SPRING!!! I love the idea. II have 6 children, (plus me and Doug). And, 7 letters in our last name. I am at the point where kidults are getting married and having children. What a PERFECT way to keep my family picture up to date. Thank-you a lot for this idea. (5 January, 2010)

I kept visiting her blog, occasionally. Then I read her "Random" post. (7 April, 2010) It was me. What do I want my blog to be when it grows up? Just like hers. My blog is my journal, cook-book and and craft file. I love how she puts her recipes on "recipe cards". I am glad that she has the file on the side so I can find what I am looking for. (That is on my list to learn how to do.) She is big on holidays and so are we:) (You would be amazed at some things that were done to us by the Leprechaun thru the years.)

I have gotten to know the family a bit thru stories and pictures (I did not look at the disected buffalo eyes.)

I love it when blogs are written to share. This week I am sharing Shauna_Rae's "Chocolate Lover's Cake" (7 April, 2010) This cake was easy and fast to make. It is dence and moist. We especially like the chocolate sauce. It is not a thick fudge sauce, but is a very nice chocolate sauce. I really liked that it did not use chocolate chips.
Chocolate Lover's Cake

1 Devil's Food cake mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup veg. oil
1/2 cup water
8 oz. sour cream (I used light)
1 small pack INSTANT chocolate pudding
1 cup chocolate chips (I may try white chocolate next time)

Mix all the ingredieants well and pour into a well greased bundt pan. I sprayed my Tupperware silicone bundt pan before I mixed the cake, and then sprayed it again before putting the mix into the pan. Let it cool COMPLETELY before inverting onto a plate. Mine came out great.

Chocolate Sauce

1 cup butter-melt in larger size pan, then add
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
Stir over low heat until the sugar is completely disolved, then add
1 can evaporated milk

Bring to a boil and boil and stir for 4 minutes, then add
1 tea. vanilla

Serve the cake with chocolate topping and canned whipped cream :^) This is easy and looks very nice. (Much better than my picture.)Thank-you, Mark and Ashley for bringing some vanilla back from Mexico for me :^)

I am looking forward to sharing some of my favourite blogs with you on Fridays. Tell me some of your favourites and why, if you would like to.

I am trying an experiment this week-end. If it works, it will FOR SURE be in my 10 Things on Monday :)

Thanks again for the feature!

Wow, this recipe looks excellent! Thanks for posting it and her blog. The Termeer's and Tilley's are now in the process of doing the family name as well. I think it is such a good idea! I'll have to send you an email of our finished product when we are done. She has such good ideas. Thanks for sharing!
