We’ll get to this yummy cake in just a minute. First I want to tell you about one of the sweetest bloggers I know. It’s Ashley from Center Cut Cook. You probably already know her and don’t even know it. Her Chocolate Lasagna is famous! I drool a little every time I see it.

Right now as I type this, Ashley is in the hospital giving birth to their first child, a little boy. A baby they waited 10 years for. Eight months ago, she and her husband Ryan, were in that same hospital being given the news that Ryan has stage 4 Colon Cancer. You can read all about their journey on the Team Ryan Facebook page. Thier positive outlook (even when the news isn’t always good) is inspiring. The ups and downs of cancer treatments and the joys (and hormones) of pregnancy. Always with a positive attitude. I can’t even imagine having to deal with this now, at my age, (ok, I confess, I’m 47.) They are so young. Ryan was 29 when he was diagnosed.

When my daughter, Grace, was hurt last April, the outpouring of support was overwhelming. The kind words, the prayers, from people I’ve never met, from around the world. You’ll never know how much those comments, notes and kind words meant to us.

I’d like for you to do the same for Ashley and Ryan. First, say a prayer (if praying is your thing) for them. For Ryan to beat this cancer, for Ashley to have an easy delivery, for a them to be holding a healthy baby in their arms soon.

If you’d like to take it a step further, a fund has been set up to help with all their expenses. Just $5.00 makes a difference when 20 people give it. You can make a donation here.

And to see the baby first, follow Ashley on Instagram, that’s where she’s stated she’ll post photos first! I can’t wait to see their precious baby boy!

So let me tell you about this cake. First, serve it warm if you can. It is melt in your mouth amazing still warm from the oven. A light vanilla flavor with little bursts of chocolate in every bite. The kids devoured this cake. No need for frosting, just a light dusting of powdered sugar to dress it up.
