A quick note and another (chocolate/peanut butter) cake

Sorry I haven't been updating - I know I promised to put up a cookie recipe (sorry Billie!) and I will do that soon. Really.
I changed the settings so that you can comment even if you don't have a blogspot blog, so feel free to add comments!

Now for another cake recipe -

I adapted this recipe from Bryanna Clark Grogan's excellent blog (I also suggest you try to make the rosewater baklava - it's easy and really good!).

chocolate fudge and peanut butter pudding cake
You end up with something that is cakey on top and the bottom is pudding/sauce and tastes really good.

Need: 8" baking pan, greased

Ingredients:
1 c whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 c sugar of your choice
1/4 c oat bran OR oat flour
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
3/4 c nondairy milk
2 t vanilla
1 c sugar
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
2 c water
1/2 c chunky peanut butter (this is what the original called for, but I'll increase it to 3/4 c next time)

1. preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. combine the first six dry ingredients in a bowl and mix
3. stir in (but don't over mix!) the fake milk and vanilla
4. spread this batter into the baking pan
5. in a small bowl combine the sugar and cocoa powder and sprinkle on top of the
batter in the pan
6. heat the water in a small pan and when it begins to boil add the peanut butter, and when it is smooth pour over the batter in the pan but DO NOT stir
6. bake for 35 minutes

tips:
- place a baking sheet in the oven rack below the cake pan to catch things if they drip
- serve warm
