I wish I could teleport. Or apparate. How awesome would that be? I could go anywhere within seconds. I would save so much money on plane tickets, and be able to visit my family whenever I wanted. It would save me so much time everyday too. I could sleep in later, and when it’s time to go to work just snap my fingers and be there instantly, instead of spending an hour in traffic.

I could also avoid things like car accidents. Because those suck. Especially when you damage your car and don’t have the money to fix it. That really bites. And if you’re at fault then you just feel absolutely horrible all day. Not a good feeling.

Don’t sneeze and drive, folks!.

Sorry, I’m ranting. I just think life would be easier if I could just teleport.

My goodness, these turned out pretty darn delicious! I really enjoyed making and eating these.  This is a tasty marbled cake that is simple to make.  I took it to work and it was gone by noon!

I didn’t tell my husband I had planned on making something sweet.  I actually hadn’t planned on it, but then I had a sudden desire to bake some sort of treat, and thus this recipe came.  He was busy upstairs, then when he finally came downstairs and was hit with the wonderful smell of cinnamon and chocolate, he said “Uh oh, something smells delicious! Why do you do this to me? You know I can’t control myself around your treats!”   I had a difficult time not devouring them all as well!

These are moist and a bit airy, and really good.  Once you have made the chocolate swirl, try not to dip your finger in the batter and taste it, otherwise you might want to eat it all.
