Lazy Cake Recipe
This recipe is perfect if you are in a hurry, need dessert but do not want to spend a lot of time in kitchen, craving chocolate yet lazy, or whenever surprised with a last minute guests.
It only takes 15 minutes to prepare. Kids love it as a snack, and adults enjoy it with coffee or tea. Between you and me, this is not an actual cake. That’s why it’s called Lazy Cake.
