Charles and I made the upside down German chocolate cake last week. I wrote the ingredients I would need to make the cake on the back of my grocery list so I wouldn’t forget anything.

Charles is really new at grocery shopping. I can tell him what aisle the items we need should be on and then he’ll have to look for them.

We were on aisle nine. What we needed should have been there, however, he was having a hard time locating the items, so I asked one of the girls who was standing on her head trying to clean a shelf so she could re-stack it, where the German chocolate cake mix was.
I was standing right in front of it. I guess she realized I couldn’t see  or she just wanted to be helpful, so she got the cake mix for me and then continued to find the items we needed on that aisle. Now we have a new friend in Wally World by the name of Beverly D.

This recipe really appealed to me since we have home made ice cream every week. It really is simple and I am sure all kids would enjoy it.

• 1 Devil’s Food cake mix
• 1/3 cup oil
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together cake mix, oil, and eggs in a large bowl. The dough will be stiff.

Lightly flour a clean surface. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin until the dough is about 1/2 inch thick. Use a round cup or a cookie cutter to cut out uniform cookies. Spray a cookie sheet with vegetable oil.

Place the cut out dough on the pan. Bake eight to 10 minutes. Place cookies on a cooling rack.

When cool, place a scoop of ice cream between 2 cookies. Wrap the sandwich in plastic wrap. Store cookies in an air tight container in the freezer.

Sounds Gooder’n Syrup. Von

A note of thanks:

I want to thank all the civil servants and individuals that offered assistance on July 10 when my husband and I were involved in an accident with a Lincoln Navigator on Hwy 105 in Orangefield.

Those that came to our rescue seemed to pop out of the sky. I can’t praise you enough. I am ashamed that I neglected to get the names of all those who stopped to help. I hope they read this article and send me a recipe, I’ll know their name then.

Until then I remain the Gooder’n Syrup recipe lady that really does appreciate everyone that cared and we love you all. Von Broussard, 2659 Oilla Road, Orange, Texas 77630
