This was an incredible cake. Even I, with my massive sweet tooth, could only handle a sliver at a time - and that was with milk. I don't care how many calories were in each sliver, because it was worth every one of them.
It's a sour cream chocolate cake with peanut butter cream cheese frosting and a chocolate peanut butter ganache. I made it for my birthday since I wanted to bake, and I wanted something really indulgent. The big slice you see missing is the piece I kept at home for the family to eat. Everything else visible was taken to work to share with my coworkers; cake that good is too dangerous to keep in the house! It was popular at work, too, as there was none left for me to bring home at the end of the day.
I got the recipe from Smitten Kitchen, so I'll link you directly to her post. I didn't change anything at all about the recipe, so I'm not going to retype it here. And this way you can go admire her photos, which are much more attractive than mine!
Make this cake.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

I've been shameless in ignoring the blog lately.
I have plenty of excuses - I've been doing some editing (paid editing jobs, which I love!); we just had a wonderful, long family visit that took some planning and time; we're in the midst of a whirlwind of birthday parties, all of which require me to shop for presents on my lunch break when I would normally be preparing blog posts...
They're all excuses, though - I could make time.
But the more I ignore it, the guiltier I feel. And the guiltier I feel, the more I want to ignore it.
So maybe "shameless" is the wrong word, because I feel ashamed of having ignore it for so long when I know there are people out there checking here for updates on the kids. Updates that I've been very delinquent in providing.
I apologize for making you wait, and I will get back to posting. I won't say I'll do it when life gets less hectic, because I'm beginning to think that time will never come. I'll just promise to get back to it. Soon.
Thanks for hanging in there!
