When we finally get to go glamping (soon I hope) I’m going to make vintage style desserts and fresh perked coffee on our adventures.
This dessert is perfect for glamping because it’s quick and easy to throw together, calls for common ingredients, and bakes in less than 30 minutes. I’m so excited that one of these days I’ll be able to bake in my little gold vintage oven.
This recipe calls for 4 tablespoons of one of my favorite liquors – Kahlua. I promise the flavor is subtle and it won’t overwhelm you.
Kahlua Chocolate Chip Cake
Grease a 9×13 pan. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
1 c. margarine, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 tbsp. Kahlua
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a large bowl, cream together margarine, sugars, and eggs. Beat in baking soda, salt, vanilla extract, Kahlua, and flour. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center. Allow to cool before cutting.
This cake is moist and doesn’t crumble easily. You really don’t even need a fork for it. That’s a good quality if you want to cozy up in front of a campfire and eat your dessert.
Do you have a favorite dessert you like to make when you’re camping (glamping)? How about crockpot desserts, ever tried one of those? Also, I’d love to know what you consider a good vintage style dessert.
