I am one of those people who love to cook and bake. As in I love it. BUT I also love quick fixes especially if it is something that is very nice and that people will enjoy but literally takes me little effort to put together but I end up looking like such a cooking star. WIN.

What about you? If you are anything like me I bet you will love this recipe. It reminds me of my favourite chocolate cake to bake, the One Bowl Chocolate Cake. It comes together in 10 to 15 mins tops if you are a bit disorganized then into the oven for 50 mins. This is exactly the same. comes together in 10 to 15 bakes for 50 min and is eaten within an hour. Easy and who turns out the hero? YOU.

Try it your family will love it.

Happy Baking!
