Pudding cake rocks, I often make one for a simple weeknight dessert. With a little vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, maybe some chocolate syrup, this is a real treat. This recipe is more cakey than pudding-like. I felt the salt was a bit much and would probably cut it down to 1/2 teaspoon. Would also use smooth peanut butter, just personal preference. I used commercial peanut butter but would love to try this with the natural stuff. Thanks, Theresa, for sharing the recipe!
