I am going to make some desserts. One to share tonight and one to share at our Parish Harvest Dinner tomorrow. I made a Peanut Butter Sheet Cake first. It was beautiful and then I went to move it onto a disposable sheet so that I could take it to the Harvest Dinner, of course I destroyed it. Frank said it was because I refused to listen to him and he is right but I'm not admitting it LOL. Anyway, when life gives you lemons......I am going to break up this first cake and create a chocolate and peanut butter trifle for dessert tonight. The cake tastes delicious so I know if I layer it with Dark Chocolate Pudding, Whipped Cream and Chopped Peanuts how can I go wrong....it sounds wonderful. I am going to stop and buy a disposable sheet cake pan (and more peanut butter) on my way home from my CSA so that I can make my next cake on that and not have to worry about transferring it LOL.
Peanut Butter Sheet Cake from the Pioneer Woman
A Happy Accident.
Trifle made with Peanut Butter Cake, Chocolate Fudge Pudding and Whipped Cream.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle
1/2 of a peanut butter sheet cake (I used this recipe)
2 large boxes of chocolate fudge pudding made to box directions
1 pint whipping cream, whipped with 1 T. powdered sugar
1 bag crushed peanuts for garnish
Cut the peanut butter cake into squares and place 1/3 of them on the bottom of a trifle bowl, there will be gaps. Pour about 1/3 of the pudding over the cake and then 1/3 of the whipped cream over the pudding. Make two more layers. Sprinkle the crushed peanuts on the last layer of whipped cream as garnish.
Wednesday we will be celebrating our daughter, Amy's, birthday with a quiet dinner here at home. Just us, Amy and Doug and Frank's Mom. Amy has requested Meatloaf and Apple Pie. We will be heading up north with Amy and Doug next weekend to continue the birthday celebration.
