Peanut butter chocolate chip cake
Snack cakes can’t be beat when your kids want to bake with you. And since peanut butter and chocolate is probably my kids’ favorite flavor combination, so I wasn’t very surprised when Sam chose this cake to bake. He pretty much made this on his own with me just keeping an eye on things, and he did a great job. All the kids hanging around loved it, and it made a perfect after school snack. Guess that’d be why it’s a snack cake, eh?
