Happy Birthday to Prism Book Group!

This is a birthday party/blog hop - a kind of progressive dinner style soiree.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Prism family through being an author and an acquisitions editor.

I feel honored to be able to unveil the cover for Brave New Century for the first time right here on my blog. This book will release in November. My co-authors and I want to entice you to be on the look-out for this historical romance collection.

My next order of business is to share a cake recipe. This recipe is famous at my church, made and brought by Rebecca.

Rebecca's Chocolate Cake
2 c. plain flour             2 eggs, beaten
2 c. sugar                    1 c. water
1/2 c. oil                     1 stick butter
1 stick butter               4 T. cocoa
4 T. cocoa                  6 T. milk
1 tsp. vanilla                1 box confectioners sugar
1 tsp. soda
1/2 c. buttermilk
Put flour and sugar in large mixer bowl. Begin to mix, with mixer. In small saucepan, bring 1 cup water, 4 T. cocoa, 1/2 cup oil to a boil. Pour over sugar and flour, continue mixing. Add vanilla, soda, buttermilk, eggs, mix well. Bake 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Icing: Bring 1 stick butter, 4 T. cocoa, 6 T. milk to a boil. Pour over confectioners sugar, mix well.

This cake is a chocolate lover's delight!
