Have Your Cake.

Sometimes the best way to say something is on a cake…

What do you have to say?

For the first time in 8 years, I got to spend Easter at home with my family and, it has to be said, I had forgotten how much I love this holiday.  Not because of any religious connotation…that’s not really my thing.  But there was something about the lead up to the day that meant a whole lot of adorable decorations, a glorious amount of baking treats and the realization that Spring has finally sprung.  My mom had planted little bunnies and eggs in just the right places around the house and I replaced my red wine drinking (I’ve got a month in which I have to behave) with destroying the kitchen making as many delectable delights as possible.  In the end, I had successfully managed to make cranberry and white chocolate oatmeal cookies, a chocolate fudge cake with homemade whipped cream, chocolate nest cookies, chocolate-dipped shortbread and, my personal favorite, coconut macaroons dipped in dark chocolate.

One of my best friends, and former roommates, once told me that she knew when I was unhappy because I would stop cooking.  Suppose this means we’re in good shape  :)

Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies. You heard me.

I am completely obsessed with TasteSpotting, an incredible blog/community dedicated to super yummy and gorgeous-looking food.  Members share recipes and you are able to sign-up and make a note of all your favs, acting as a bit of a personalised digital cookbook.

Yesterday, TasteSpotting led me to a blog called Betty Bakes and her recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies.  I was going over to a good friends new flat last night and, as he is obsessed with peanut butter, I thought it would be a most excellent after-dinner treat.  And not that I ever questioned it, but I was soooo right!

It’s a process to make these brownies and I learned a bit of the hard way that I really need a larger mixing bowl, but it is quite easy and these are delicious!  Brownie, topped with peanut butter, topped with solid chocolate.  I mean, you can’t really go wrong with that combo, can you?

Try them out, let me know what you think!
