Simple Cocoa Cake - 3 points

This is another adaptation of my Aunt's simple spice cake.
Simple Cocoa Cake
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1. Sift flour and cocoa into a large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and beat for 2 to 3 minutes.
2. Bake in a greased 9x13" pan for 30 minutes at 350F.
3. Yeilds 24, 3 point servings
Alas, this is not the best photograph. I was just so, so hungry! And so, so desperate for chocolate! I took the cake piping hot from the pan, sprinkled on the powedered sugar, and stuffed my face. It was...bliss. 

I am a bit late for Menu Plan Monday, but here is my plan nonetheless.

chicken country captian

Monday
crock pot hot Cornish game hen

Tuesday
tuna in chili oil

Wednesday
roasted eggplant soup

Thursday
