It was super late, when the kiddos and I had a sweet tooth. I was tired and feeling lazy, thus the name. I wanted something super easy and quick, but we were out of everything. I had a cake mix, chocolate chips and pumpkin. Not even any eggs! I have to say this turned out even better than if I had made it the usual way. You actually don't really taste the pumpkin, but it made the cake extremely moist without any oil.

We poured some milk over the top and voila! Our lazy cake was awesome. Hope you try it. I think you'll like it.:)

Easy and delicious.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Just dump everything into a bowl and beat it a little. I usually use a sheet cake pan and bake at 350 degrees F. for 35 minutes.

I use a 2 cup measure and put in the cup of water. If you add the mayonnaise to the water it is much easier to get out of the cup.

This is a really soft tender cake. Sometimes I add an egg - not sure why. LOL!

I always ice it with vanilla butter cream icing just because that is my preference. Enjoy!

This cake is delicious! I honestly have never made one that I liked better. And yes, this is still dessert, and still sugary... but it is much healthier than your average box cake. Please try this, it's so good!

Total Time: About 20- 30 minutes prep

Yield: 13" by 9" cake

Source: Modified from a recipe in a book called Clean Eating

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups cooled coffee
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 6 Tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix your flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Mix your coffee, oil, extract and vanilla in another bowl. Add this to your dry ingredient bowl and stir until combined.
  3. Pour into a greased 13" by 9" dish. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.
  4. In a small pot, add chocolate chips, peanut butter, oil and extracts. Stirring continuously, melt over medium/low heat. Make sure there are no lumps.
  5. Spread evenly over your cake. This cake is super good eaten in a bowl with milk poured over the top. Yum!:)

The cake recipe speaks for itself in it's name. It is out of the 7th printing of Betty Crocker's Cookbook, printed in 1971. The frosting recipe was given to me from my daughter, Kelly. I don't know where it originally came from.

When baking chocolate cakes, dust the pan with some of the dry chocolate cake mix instead of flour since flour usually leaves white spots on the cake.
