Hershey’s Heritage Chocolate Cake Recipe

I really wanted to make cake so my mom said that we would. She said we would us the recipe for www.hersheykitchens.com   Then she said we did not have all the ingredients. So she sent my brother and my dad to get the missing ingredients .After they came back I started baking away. Then we put the cake in the oven and started to eat dinner, after dinner was over we started watching TV. Then the timer went off I rushed over to turn of the timer and to look at the cake. Then my mom came over to take the cake out of the oven .While it was cooling I was making the frosting and icing. The icing was very biter so I added the sugar. Then I tasted it tasted so much better! Then I put some frosting one each layer. Then I poured icing all over the cake.then I let the frosting freeze to the cake. About an hour later my mom did something that was good .she cut the cake early .Man did it taste good! It was amazing! It was awesome! I liked so much!

Mango Madness

I am writing this recipe because I like mangoes and I like mango ice-cream. Mango ice-cream bursts with mango flavor and its yellowish-orange color reminds me of the sun. Recently my dad bought an ice-cream maker and we started making a lot ice-cream. Mango ice-cream was the 2nd ice-cream that we made.  When I noticed a can of mango puree in our pantry, I started shouting, “Mom! Mom! Mom! Can we make mango ice-cream?”. She said, “Sure, lets just make it now.”.

Here is what we used

2 cups heavy cream

1 cup milk  (any milk other than skim)

1 1/2 cup mango puree

3/4 cup sugar

1. Whip  cream and sugar together with an electric mixer till soft peaks form. They are fun to watch.

2. Add mango puree and milk and whip for a minute till everything is mixed together.

3. Pour into the ice-cream maker and wait patiently.

So we went downstairs and we got eveything out from the pantry. My mom told me her favorite recipes from Abigail Johnson Dodge’s ‘book – The weekend baker’. and we baked it !. It was fun and I hope you like too.

My mom watched as I measured the ingredients and she put the bread in the oven. You can make it with a little help. it is very easy to make and is lot of fun. You just need these ingredients.

3 very ripe bananas ( I used 3 and 1/2 as nobody wanted to eat the ripe blackened bananas)

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup canola oil

2  large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

(optional) 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used cashew nuts)

How to Make Banana Bread.

Add flour, baking soda and baking powder and salt into a meduim bowl.

Mix all the dry ingredients with a whisk or a spoon.

Peel  bananas; add oil, brown sugar, eggs and vanila into a big bowl.

Beat all the  wet ingredients with an electric mixer.

Get a rubber spatula out and pour all the flour from the medium bowl to the big bowl.
