At the end of last year, I hit a snag…..I lost my job!
I’ve been so grateful for the last few months. I had multiple people reach out about job opportunities and groceries. I made the best with what I had been given…a bunch of baking ingredients. Pinterest and Tiktok were my best friends.
Did you know you could make a cake with just boxed cake mix and a can of Sprite Zero? It’s super duper good!! And I’m super weird, but I put the frosting on while the cake is warm. It melts all around it.
Things I’ve done since losing my job: -applied for a ton of jobs -baked some yummy bread -allowed myself to break down a handful of times -donated plasma -set routines in place for myself and my kiddos -asked for a lot of help -humbled myself toward my sons and daughters -baked a little more bread 🥖
I have a little more wait time for job opportunities, but with my support and my children, I can do anything.
What I love about this recipe is that it takes no wait time at all. Because it uses self-rising flour, you don’t have to allow it to rise for a couple hours. Another reason is that my kids LOVE it when I make this dough. We’ve made cheese bomb rolls (wrapped cubes of mozzarella cheese in the dough), breadsticks, and pizza with this recipe.
We made a super simple cheese pizza with ours. I had left over shredded cheese and a half jar of pizza sauce. Thankfully, my kids were satisfied.
2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup of plain greek yogurt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flour and greek yogurt to mixer.
Mix until it forms into a ball.
Oil up your sheet pan and stretch out dough.
Add toppings to your liking.
Put in oven for 17-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
This had to have been one of my favorite recipes to try out. It’s important to follow the directions so that you’ll have that ooey, gooey hot fudge in with the cake. If you’re a chocoholic, you’ll want to try out this delicious dessert!
Mix the flour, sugar, 2 tablespoons of cocoa, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix the milk, oil, and vanilla together with a whisk.
Mix just until moistened. Add to flour mixture.
Move to a 9-inch square baking pan that hasn’t been greased. Mix the brown sugar and the rest of the cocoa in a small bowl, then sprinkle it over the batter. Pour hot water over everything, but don’t mix it.
Bake 35-40 minutes. Let it cool for just a few minutes and then serve. If you want, add ice cream or whipped cream on top.
