Day One – Peanut Butter Cookie Dough and a Reason to Celebrate!

First up – the Celebration! I have completed my first MONTH blogging here! I’ve kept up Pint Sized Baker and Dieter’s Downfalls. Deadlines have come close, but I’ve kept up and have successfully maintained TWO Blogs! Hooray for me! To celebrate, I’ve teamed up with some great bloggers to have my First Giveaway! See below for more AMAZING Details!

This week, we are going to make  a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for the Chocolate Peanut Butter lover!!

I love cookie dough (even with eggs… I’m reckless like that).

This recipe is without eggs, so rest assured, it can be devoured safely! I’ve made this cookie dough before for Pint Sized Baker and made it for truffles, pops, and as an add-in for ice cream. It’s quite versatile.

Three recipes to a decadent Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cake - from

This cake was rich and creamy and had a great blend of chocolate and peanut butter.

When Mr. Quart took his first bite, he announced he had a mouth-gasim! I’ll take that as a complete Success!!

More on the CAKE in the next post and then the Frosting and decorating on the final post.

Wondering how I got it in that perfect disk? I used a springform pan and lined the bottom and sides with parchment paper and did my best to get it flat and even. This worked like a charm to just place it between my cake layers. Try it with your buttercream as well. It was an easy way to get an amazing center!

Now, to the GIVEAWAY!!!

I’m teamed up with a bunch of great bloggers to co-host my FIRST Giveaway on Dieter’s Downfall and it’s a GREAT Giveaway! I could not get by in the kitchen without my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I love it! And if you win, you’ll love it too!  Good Luck!

      Thanks so much. I thought about just posting once a week of the final product, but I don’t bake that way, and I figured that most busy people don’t either. So, this is a great approach to having a wonderful dessert without killing yourself in the kitchen!

  5. Karyn, that chocolate and peanut butter cake looks absolutely divine!! Thanks for sharing and I definitely want to try this! Have a great week!

  6. This looks AMAZING!!! Hard to go wrong with peanut butter

  7. Yeah, slice me a wedge of that bad boy to celebrate! Or better yet, hand it to me and let me eat it in peace. In LOVE with that 2 cup circle of tastiness!

  8. I will be trying this for sure!!

    can’t wait until i can make this

  11. Sharon says:

    Just printed the three recipes out, my kids and grandkids will love this….thanks for the slicing tip.

  12. Looks great! However, I didn’t own any springform pans, so I wonder if it’s easy to take out the cold dough out of a normal tin pan? Any advice?
