What I'm eating: chocolate peanut butter cake

It's that time of year again, Jeff's birthday which will shortly be followed by my birthday. For his birthday cake this year, Jeff chose a chocolate peanut butter cake from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's The Joy of Vegan Baking. The recipe is for cupcakes but I just made it in a big cake tin and doubled the cooking time.

Well, the cake is absolutely delicious but the chocolate peanut butter frosting that goes with it is divine! We have some icing left over too... probably not for long...

Happy eating! :)

Warm banana and chocolate dessert recipe

Ok, I know that this looks really gross but hear me out... it's not.

Now anyone who reads this blog will know that I'm a big fan of chocolate and comfort foods, so of course chocolate comfort foods are the highest tier of deliciousness in my book. This recipe is one that I dreamed up recently and it is a new favourite to eat snuggled on the lounge with a blanket and a movie. I like to think that this dessert is also a healthy dessert... it does have bananas in it after all... that makes it healthy, right?

Serves 1

1 large banana
Vegan choc-chips (I use Sweet William)

1. Cut banana in half length-ways and arrange in a bowl like a banana split.

2. Sprinkle with choc-chips and microwave on high for 2 minutes.

3. Stir and enjoy.

Happy eating! :)
