We have a officially entered baking season!
Don’t you love that foods have seasons? I’m talking beyond their seasonal growing periods of course but for the most part, there are certain times of year that food lovers, cooks and bakers concentrate on types of food.
In the summer you could call it hamburger and grilling season.
In the dead of winter, it’s absolutely comfort food season.
Now, during the holidays – it’s heavy baking season and with a busy schedule no one has time for fussy desserts. They want something that’s easy, delicious and a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
If you know me, you know that I don’t make cakes. They are too fussy and take way too much time. Give me cookies, brownies and blondies any day of the week.
Sometimes though, you just want a slice cake and nothing can replace that craving. This is where the one-layer, single pan, snack cake comes in. Whoever invented it is a genius and I would kiss them if I met them or maybe just give them a piece of this cake!
Baking this cake is as easy as pie. . . errr I mean cake! No fancy layers, no worrying about having enough buttercream, or if the cake is level or even decorating! Simply bake, cool, frosting and top with crunchy bits! Plus, it’s chocolate and peanut butter – it’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
