Last night I looked at my menu plan wrong and ended up making Tuesday’s meal instead of Monday. No big deal, I’ll just make Monday’s tonight.
Tuesday’s meal called for a dessert, and in true frugal fashion I didn’t want it to break the bank. I’ve been eating all things chocolate the last few days, so I knew I wanted something chocolately–but I wanted lots of it!
This occassion called for Depression Cake. But not the regular run of the mill Depression Cake. My revamped, chocolate infused Depression Cake.
Here is my revamped version (I only made slight changes this time).
6 Tbsp cocoa
6 Tbsp oil
French Vanilla Pudding Mix
White Chocolate Pudding Mix with white chocolate chips (maybe even a small addition of macadamia nuts)
Coconut Pudding Mix and a handful of shredded coconut.
Banana Cream Pudding Mix with 1/2 smashed banana
Oreo Pudding Mix with 1/2 cup crushed oreos
Of course different additions with affect the pricing of the cake–but, either way you look at it it is still a frugal, delish cake!
If you try any of these variations, or have any other ideas, please let us know!
