Make It & Take It Graduate’s Social “D” Picnic (May 17 – May 23)

Graduates still need to be acknowledged, even with social distancing. Every grad deserves a chocolate cake to go. Let the recipient keep the heat resistant cake container, as part of the gift and include the recipe for Grad 101 cooking-on-their-own! Kelly’s Bayou City Cake: Prepare a 9 in. X 13 in. greased heat resistant dish. Mix together 4 eggs and 2 sticks of butter. Then, add 2 cups of sugar. Add (pre-stirred together): 1 ½ cups of flour, 1/3 cup of cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon of baking soda to the egg mixture. Sir well. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 cup of shredded coconut and 1 cup of chopped pecans. Bake at 350⁰F for about 30 minutes, until baked. For the Icing: Mix 1 stick of melted butter, 6 tablespoons of milk, 1/3 cup of cocoa powder, 1 package of powdered sugar, as needed until the desired thickness is reached, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Spread the icing on the cake and then press chopped pecans into the icing! Applause, applause for the many successes and future successes! © Kelly McBride Loft
