Chocolate Cowboy Flop Cake

You may be wondering why I called this a ‘flop’ cake. Well, it’s because when I cook I’m usually doing two or three recipes simultaneously~~my nature is to multi-task, and that’s what happens in the kitchen! From photographing, writing down recipes as I’m creating, washing pots, skillets, dishes to having to team up two recipes in the hot oven~~usually, it’s not a problem. However, in this case, as this sweet cowboy cake was giddy upping in the oven and puffing up ever so tenderly, yes, I opened the oven door, put in a tray above them on the rack, and then shut that oven door just a tad bit too hard! And, this is what happens, the cake flops!

And, here’s one more thing about making cakes. You decide what you want to bake it in; while this recipe can be for a bundt pan, as you can see I used a ceramic skillet. And there was enough batter left over to make a small bread pan of it. That’s what being bohemian in the kitchens all about. Put your unique twist, spin, and personality into what you create~~it’s good for the soul and spirit!
