Chocolate Eclair Cake – Cooking with Katie
Today I am introducing a new series on Mamal Diane called Cooking with Katie. Katie is my 8-year-old granddaughter and she is going to share a recipe for a simple Chocolate Eclair Cake on the first episode.
Katie chose this recipe from a cookbook that she and her classmates made in school. Each child brought in their family favorite recipe and the teacher put all the recipes together and laminated and the pages. Since Katie knows how much I love cooking and creating recipes, so she gave the cookbook to me for Christmas. The first thing she said when I opened the cookbook was “can we please make the Chocolate Eclair Cake recipe that my friend Zoe shared? It sounds so good”! “Of course”, I said, “we will make it together”.
Katie has been asking me to make a video with her and that was the original plan, but after I set up all my lighting etc… I realized I forgot to bring an important piece that secures my camera to the tripod. So instead I decided to take regular photos and make a slideshow video recipe, my first. I hope you enjoy the recipe!
