This is going to be a "drive by" post because I'm in the midst of preparing a rather unusual post (for me anyway:) and I'm still working on it. I'll give you a little hint by telling you it has something to do with wishing my Chinese visitors a Happy New Year!!!
In the meantime, rather than have this delicious cake go stale, I thought I would drop off just one sliver. Since my photography skills have not improved in the new year, I'm also including "their" pro image:) I adapted this recipe for Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting from The Land of Lakes Recipe Collection booklet published in 2005.
The cake was absolutely delicious. I was a bit worried it may be too peanut buttery so I used only 1/2 cup peanut butter. (It was also all I had:) Marion loved it!!! It came out sort of fudgy like a brownie but thicker and gooeier (is that a word?) Marion and I both decided it probably would have been better to make one layer and freeze the other but too late now!!!
I hope to see you all in a few days with the "mysterious" post. Don't forget National Peanut Brittle Day on January 26th. Here's a recipe from The Peanut Butter Cookbook by Judi & Tony Meisel. (©1993)
