Very yummy! I didn't use baking squares of chocolate, but with a little detective work I figured out each square is equal to one ounce. I also used natural crunchy peanut butter since that is what we have in the house, and it worked fine. Two of us shared a (heart shaped!) ramekin, instead of turning it out onto a plate. If you love peanut butter and chocolate together, this one's for you!

What's not to love about chocolate and peanut butter together. So delicious. The recipe was reduced to one wonderful cake which DH and I shared on a single plate. I followed Maito and used 1 oz of semi sweet chocolate chips. The cake was dusted lightly with confectioner's sugar at serving. Made for Aussie Swap.

This did not turn out good at all. Cake had absolutely no taste.
