Crazy Cakes - Chocolate and Spice

I think the name fits my life at the moment.

Oh folks, I miss cooking so much.  I feel like I've been living on easy peasy boring meals for the past month and I'm just ready to move, get settled into the new house and start cooking again.

Once in a while I try to bake a cake or something sweet for my kiddos, and this one is so easy to make.  It's great for those who can't eat eggs because this wacky crazy cake does not have eggs, milk or butter and just like the other yummy Mix in a Pan Cake, you mix it all right in your baking pan.

The recipe comes from Sweet Little Blue Bird and she has quite a few flavor combinations, my kids couldn't decide on what they wanted, the boy wanted chocolate, and the girl wanted spice, so I made both since they're small cakes baked in an 8x8 inch pan.

I'm giving you the recipes to the chocolate and the spice, but there is also a vanilla and a lemon variation.  Yum!
