6 TBSP cocoa, 1/4 C butter, 1 C sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/3 C flour, 2 eggs, Cook 350 - 25 mins.



After a day of family time and driving around with the windows down I came home today and made "4th of July Cake" at the request of my sons. It can be made many ways but this is how I make it. They always enjoy it and I think your family will too. :-)

1. Make your favorite brownies or cake
2. Ice it with Cream Cheese Icing or any White Icing that your family enjoys
3. Place fresh blueberries in a square to represent the stars on the American Flag
4. Place your favorite red berries in rows to represent the stripes of the American Flag. (We use quartered Strawberries)

5. Eat! :o)

I was tired and wind blown but the boys wanted me to put a picture of myself on the blog with "Mom's 4th of July Cake" so now you know I have no shame when placing my photo on this blog. LOL Hope your family had a wonderful 4th of July !

I made something similar to this, only I used raspberries instead of strawberries, and just iced it with cool whip. SO pretty, and SO yummy! :)
