Chocolate Ooey Gooey Butter Cake

The Paula Deen strawberry ooey gooey butter cake was a hit and there are many other flavors or the butter cake.  This is the chocolate butter cake and it is very good as well.  I think you will like it. 

Keep a chocolate cake mix in your pantry so you will be ready to make it at any time.
Start with a pkg of chocolate cake mix.  There are different types of chocolate cake mix so pick your favorite.
Melt 1 stick of butter for now.
Add one egg
Mix that into the cake mix.  It will be thick.
Press into the bottom of a sprayed 9x13 baking dish.
Then add 8 oz of softened cream cheese
2 eggs
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Mix that well.  It looks like frosting.
Now add 16 oz or 3 3/4 cup powdered sugar
Mix that well.
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla
Melt your other stick of butter.  Add to the mixture.
Mix well.
Pour over the cake mix crust.  Place in a preheated 350 oven.  Bake for 40-50 minutes.  Check it after 30.  You don't want to overtake.
Let cool well before cutting.
Cut and enjoy.  Very easy to make and great for taking to a pot luck dinner.

Monster Cookies

Here's another cookie recipe for you.  This one was my favorite and I didn't share this one like I did the others.  This cookie has a little bit of everything in it. You can even make it seasonal with the mini M&M's.
This cookie has lots of chocolate, peanut butter, and oats in it. 
These could be called the kitchen sink cookies.
Start with 1 stick of softened butter
Add 1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter.  Mix this well.
Add 1 egg
2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cornstarch.  I am finding more and more recipes with cornstarch in them.
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups quick oats
1 cup mini M&M's.  These are usually found in the baking isle.
The cookie dough looks good enough to eat.
I scooped them up onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  And into the freezer they went. 
Then I labeled my freezer zip lock bag and stored them in the freezer. 
When I baked them I preheated the oven to 350.  Frozen they took about 10 1/2 minutes to 11.  Non frozen 7-9 minutes.  Just watch them so they don't get to brown.

Cinnamon Crunch Banana Bread

What do you do when you have ripe bananas?  You make banana bread.  This is a new recipe with a nice cinnamon topping.  I think you will like this recipe.  It is freezable too.  Of course these are going in the freezer too.  I guess what I don't use for the open house we can have for breakfast for a couple of weeks. 
This recipe uses walnuts instead of pecans but you could use either.
Start with 1/4 cup oil
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
2/3 cup sugar.  Mix this well until fluffy.
Add 3 ripe bananas that have been mushed.
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts.
This is the topping
2 Tablespoons softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour.  I also missed the 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix that well.
Fill your loaf pan or pans.  I used the mini pans.
Top with the cinnamon mixture.  Place in a preheated 350 oven.  Bake for about 30-40 minutes.  Test after 30 minutes.
The topping kinda oozed over the sides but that is okay.  Let cool in the pan for a few minutes.  Run a knife around the edges to help it come out.
I was worried they were not going to come out clean but they did! Let cool and then wrap for the freezer or wrap to eat later.
