We had 2 birthdays to celebrate at work, and you better believe I volunteered pretty fast to make a treat for all of us. It was time for cake. It should always be time for cake.
The problem was, I volunteered the day before we needed the cake, and we had an activity
that night, and some errands, plus the usual dinner/hysterical playtime/PLEASE
everyone go to bed now so I can too time, and so I had no time to go to the store;
I needed to make something with whatever I had on hand.
I grabbed my Bon Appetit cookbook off the shelf because I remembered from my
testing how many wonderful desserts there were. My first two picks had to be no'ed
because I didn't have all the ingredients.
I landed on this super easy kitchen staple ready Chocolate and Peanut Butter Streusel Cake.
In less than an hour the cake was out of the oven and cooling, and because of the streusel
topping I didn't have to ice it, another bonus. I was a bit worried that the edges were going
to be rock hard as I'd had to add some extra cooking time, but the cake stayed nice and
moist, which was a real bonus as it was a huge cake that lasted a long time.
