Chocolate Chip Cake

Updated: Feb 29

The kids go to school with a full lunchbox, usually filled with delicious treats. I try to make as many homemade treats for them as possible. I would prefer to stand in the kitchen and make them something to eat, than pick something up from the shop (not that there is anything wrong in it.) So this week I wanted to make a quick cake to put in their lunchbox for school. I always add extra food in their lunches, because it has happened so many times that the other kids in their class didn’t bring any lunch to school and don’t have money for snacks. So as a habit, I always put more food in their lunchboxes and encourage my children to just give the kids something from their lunch. I can’t see hungry kids. It makes me sick, that there is a child working hard all day at school and has nothing to eat for lunch. 

Chocolate chip cake

This chocolate chip cake was a huge hit with my kids and their friends. They asked me to make them another the next day and send it in for them. My eldest said that the boy who asked for it, took a bite and was so happy. Just that feeling made my day. I was so glad he had something to eat for lunch. I hope that we can always find the strength to help others who have less than we do. Sharing is caring.
