When mom was not feeling well & I "needed" to make something I would follow a recipe & with each step I would show mom my progress with the recipe. If I recall, it was called a "Crazy chocolate cake". Nothing too fancy but a scratch recipe that a 10-12 year old cold try. That was over 40 years ago & mom has been gone for 27 years. Thanks mom! You got me baking then & I haven't stopped. Thanks VBB for this terrific site & being able to share.

Thanks for sharing! I know the cake you are talking about! It has so many names, we called it a wacky cake and it is oh so good! I am 55 and remember how easy it was to make! God Bless You! I know what it is to lose a loved one, I lost my dad in 2002! He dearly loved that cake!

Memories are so important; they help keep our family and all things that were and are still what matters today alive. With everything that is going on in the world today we need those memories to remind use that there are good things still here.

  We all have a favorite memory of baking or cooking with our Moms. They pass it on to us and we pass it on to out children.

I remember when I was small and at my Mom's side baking and cooking with her,when ever she made a pie or bread or any bakery she always let me make my own miniature of what she was making,A small braided bread,or a pie using the left over pie dough pressed into a small ramakin and she would leave a little filling for me.I just always felt special when I was around her.She left me with a lot of memories and also a lot of knowledge.No amount of money can replace the time we spend with our families,some of the best times were when we had very little money and we entertained at home with family and friends.I miss my Mom,I lost her 1996,one week before Christmas.

I remember the first thing I ever baked.  Brownies, from a box.  I think I may have been 8 or so.  My mom told me to get everything I needed for the brownies together and once I did that to have her check what I did.  She came and looked to see that I had gathered everything, had the oven pre heating, pan greased.  She told me to follow the directions then to call her before I put the brownies in the oven.  I was so proud when I had mixed every thing and called her to have her watch me put MY brownies in the oven.  As she looked at the brownies and the counter she gently asked me what I was planning on doing with the egg that was in the bowl.  After scraping the brownies out of the pan, mixing in the egg pouring the batter back into the pan we were rewarded with very good brownies.
That was my first baking experience. 
My mom died several years after that and never saw me become the person I am now but I think she would be proud.
Lesson here.  If you have family recipes, write them down, pass them on. I have no family recipes and there are several things that my Mom made and several my Dad made and I would dearly love to have the recipes but they are lost.

Moms are wonderful!  My Mom taught me how to bake pies and make the dough from scratch.  I have no trouble with my crusts and it is all thanks to Mom for the special things.

Great menories.  My Mom and I baked and cooked together years ago, although I think I did mre "clean up".  I was always taught to clean up as you go so you didn' t have a big mess when you were finished.

Karen I don't have memories of baking w/my mother!  I know you will pull this memory out at Christmas!  My mother was in a wheelchair I lost her when she was 41.  What I do have memories of is setting in her lap and stirring soup or fixing hot dogs.  Memories are what we cherish at this time of the year!  Thanks for sharing & blessing to you and your family, Lisa
