No Egg Chocolate Cake Recipe

You want chocolate cake, but as you rummage through the fridge…no eggs! Ugh!

Here is a chocolate cake recipe I ran into on YouTube that doesn’t need those elusive eggs.

The recipe is from Jenny Jones on her YouTube channel “Jenny Can Cook”, called Easy Chocolate Cake.

(Yes, that Jenny Jones from the 90’s daytime talk show The Jenny Jones Show. Who knew?!)

My eight year old FoodNetwork Star, JuBean, made this cake with only a tad of help from me. (Hey, chocolate cake is serious business; you must not trifle with these most important things!)


1 1/2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup cocoa

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup cool water

6 Tbsp oil

1 Tbsp vinegar (or lemon juice)

1 tsp vanilla

Mix together in bowl (we use the hand mixer…no need for the behemoth Kitchen Aid). Pour into a greased 9 inch cake pan. Cook for 40 min at 350.

Chocolate Icing

2 Tbsp butter–softened

1 cup powdered sugar

1 Tbsp cocoa

1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix together and if needed, thin with milk 1/2 tsp at a time up to 3 tsp. Frost cool cake and then devour.

True Change, Permanent Change

A quote worthy of it’s own post.

I’m sure I’m not alone -at least I hope I am not alone- in the quest to overcome my weaknesses and parts about myself that I’m not so proud of. And frankly, God is not impressed with either.

But it’s just so difficult to shake them! To rid myself of them. To forsake them and never return to them.

However, I came across a quote today that reminded me again that there is hope for me to change, to mend the gap that is always before me.

There is hope in true and permanent change. HE is the way, the only way.

“We can change our behavior. Our very desires can change.

…True change -permanent change- can come only through the healing, cleansing, and enabling power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ…

The gospel of Jesus Christ is a gospel of change!”
