Bio:

My name is Rachel Litzinger and I am a freelance graphic designer and watercolor artist. I was raised in the forests of New Hampshire, earned my degree in the cornfields of Indiana, then lived amongst the mountains and motorbikes of Thailand for two years before returning to my NH stomping grounds. plaidGecko is my way of sharing my art and design work with you! My greatest passion is watercolor painting and illustration followed closely by pattern design. I especially love using watercolor illustrations to preserve memories such as heirloom recipes, family homes or other meaningful places and things.

Also known as 'Depression Era' cake, this recipe calls for no milk or eggs. Flavor is not lacking in this deliciously classic chocolate cake recipe! My Nana still makes one for each family birthday. We've always served it with 'whip' - but I'm sure adding your favorite frosting would be just as delicious!

Imagine if you could turn banana bread into a cookie...sounds delicious right? Well, no need to imagine any more! Visits to Harold and Martha's house were always punctuated by hours of board-game fun and a plate of these cookies. I might have also snuck one for breakfast a time or two...you'll understand after giving this recipe a try!
