Okay, okay I admit this probably seems like a weird choice after Wednesday’s post. But I had been saving this recipe for the 4th of July because it’s such a great picnic/potluck dessert. It’s makes a ton and is super portable. And in absolute fairness, my goal is to form a healthy relationship with food. All food. And that’s includes chocolate sheet cake with peanut butter frosting. 🙂
The truth is that sweets are not my downfall. Don’t get me wrong — I enjoy them very much, but it’s rare for me to binge on sweets. My sweet tooth is pretty small and too much sweetness makes my stomach hurt. On the other side, I have never meet a carb that I didn’t like and couldn’t overindulge in.
Whenever possible, I cut dessert recipes in half when it’s just me, so nothing is wasted or feel compelled to stuff myself to avoid that from happening. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible as baking is more of a science and doesn’t always respond favorably to improvisation. 🙂 In those instances, I try to bake for others or share with the office managers in my apartment. It never hurts to make the people who respond to your service requests and write your lease happy. #AmIRight
I have no idea who had the brilliant idea to combine chocolate and peanut butter together, but they are evil geniuses. It’s such a perfect pairing. The cake is nice and moist and peanut butter frosting is sweet and rich. It comes together very quickly and would be a huge hit with your family or at your next picnic or BBQ.
