I got my haircut today. I usually go to really cheap places like Hair Cuttery. I'm not picky, and I don't like spending loads of money every few months to get my haircut.
I have needed my hair cut for a while, but I have been busy. I'm leaving for a work trip tomorrow, and I wanted to get a haircut before leaving. I was lazy today and decided to just go to a nearby salon. With tip, I ended up spending $80. It is a nice cut, but it's not that nice.
It has been the most expensive haircut I have ever gotten. Given how much I spent, I'll have to run my hand through my hair many times and really enjoy the cut.
This coffee cake was made with a cake mix. I have used this recipe before for other cakes. It makes a really moist, rich, and delicious cake. I have used this base recipe to make a chocolate bundt with peanut butter cream cheese filling and peanut butter glaze and a chocolate bundt with cream cheese filling and berry glaze.
I have other delicious chocolate recipes on my blog too. I have made dark chocolate cake with ganache and cookie dough filling, caramel german chocolate cake, and chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
I found the chocolate cake recipe on allrecipes.com, but I first heard about the recipe from my mother. My sister in-law made this chocolate cake. My mom enjoyed it so much that she told me about it later. It is worth the hype!
I made the cake batter as directed. I baked it in a nine by thirteen inch cake pan instead of a bundt pan. I also added a crumb topping.
The ingredients for the cake were 1 18.25 ounce package devil's food cake mix, 1 5.9 ounce package instant chocolate pudding mix, 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup vegetable oil, 4 eggs, 1/2 half cup warm water, and 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips.
The ingredients for the crumb topping were 1/2 cup all purpose flour, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, and 3 tablespoon butter.
I added the cake mix and pudding mix into a large bowl.
I added oil, sour cream, eggs, and hot water.
I stirred the batter together and then added the chocolate chips. I mixed in the chocolate chips.
I poured the batter into a greased nine by thirteen inch baking dish.
For the crumb topping, I added the flour, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon into a bowl. I mixed the crumb topping ingredients together.
I sprinkled the crumb topping evenly on top of the cake.
I baked the cake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees.
I let it cool completely.
This was a decadent, rich, and luscious cake.
The chocolate flavor was rich and intense.
The texture was moist and tender.
The crumb topping was buttery, sweet, golden, and crisp.
It was a delicious coffee cake. It was tender and appetizing. I took it to work, and people raved about it.
It isn't the kind of thing you should eat every day, but it was well worth the caloric splurge.
