Leigh and Me and Leigh’s Chocolate Cake



My only daughter, Leigh, has been gone for 4 weeks at camp and comes home tomorrow (today for all of you reading this). I cried so hard when she left-I couldn’t even take her to camp as I didn’t want her to see how upset I would be missing her. So in her honor, I thought I would post one of her favorite recipes that was on my blog a long time ago which she created herself and makes all on her own. She is so special, and I can’t wait to see her!


Combine 1 (18.25-ounce) package Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Devil's Food Cake Mix, 3 eggs, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 2/3 cup chocolate syrup and 2/3 cup water and follow package directions for spraying and flouring the pan as well as mixing. Bake according to package directions. Let cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

To make your own chocolate sauce drizzle, melt 1 (8-ounce) package semisweet morsels with 1 tablespoon milk. Place melted chocolate in a zip-top plastic bag and cut a hole in the bottom corner of the bag and drizzle over cake.

  1. This is such a nice thing to do. I know how I get when my son leaves (complete wreck right here) and he’s only 3 years old! I can’t imagine me when he’s 7 or 8 going for sleep overs and stuff. Such a great recipe as well, thanks for sharing this and hope you and Leigh are having a great time.
