Do you have recipes that you clipped from a newspaper or magazine, put away in your recipe box and then forgotten for 10+ years? Well, this is one of those recipes.
I cut out this Red Velvet Cake from the Houston Chronicle, "Hints from Heloise," in 1998. I made it back then, loved it and saved it. Now the clipping is that iconic old newspaper shade of yellow. This recipe has moved from house to house, state to state.
Here is the Sugar Mommas’ version based on that old recipe.
Red Velvet Cake
Cookies, pancakes, muffins, brownies, crepes, waffles, cakes, pies, cupcakes - pretty much ANYTHING tastes better when chocolate chips are involved.
And lucky for us, today is National Chocolate Chip Day!
These sweet little morsels were invented by accident in the 1930s by Ruth Graves Wakefield at her Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts.
April showers bring May flowers! The blooming flowers and the bright yellow lemons falling from the trees inspire us and thumbprint cookies filled with fresh lemon curd create just the right mood.
Rally the kids inside just long enough to get their thumb imprints for these cookies. Happy Spring!
