This is a very simple chocolate cake using vinegar and no eggs. It can be made in a jiffy.
I love baking cakes….but not frosting and decorating!! So when kids insisted, I used the easiest frosting of all….whipped chocolate ganache.
By the time the cake was ready, it was late night, so I had to do all the frosting in the morning….a perfect breakfast which brought smiles to two faces.
