Salt and Pepper, Milk and Cookies, Ham and Cheese... all great pairings but the one combination to rule them all may just be:
Peanut Butter and Chocolate!
I knew what I'd be making for Cake #3.
Doesn't it look like a plate full of regret?
A few things about cakes, I always sift my dry ingredients. Some folks just whisk them but sifting incorporates the ingredients better and helps avoid the little globs of baking soda that are so gross to find in a bite of cake.
Love this stage. So full of potential:
Then you add your liquids and get batter. This is my stress spot when baking.
Will I equally divide it between pans? Did I forget the eggs? Will it rise? Will it fall?
Fast Forward to cooled cake and whipped cream cheese and peanut butter (oh my heaven I can die now) frosting.
The cake is supposed to be a three layer cake but ours is only two. First, I only own two cake pans and secondly, even if I did, we don't need a triple layer cake, on a Friday, before grocery shopping. Need to save something up my sleeve for birthdays and wedding days.
I split the batter in thirds, 2 cake pans and the rest as cupcakes. I put the cupcakes in the freezer for a later noshing date.
Wanna see it again? I know, I do too. In fact, I keep opening the fridge and looking at the latest object of my affection.
