Don't make this! I thought the ingredients looked a little off but made it anyway. It turned into a greasy disaster! I now found the same recipe on line and the ingredients say 1 3/4 cups flour not 3/4 cup flour as is shown on this recipe. Well, no time to bake another as my picnic is in an hour. I will have to pick up something at the grocery store.
My 2 favorite things in the whole world....chocolate and peanut butter. This cake is DELICIOUS and does transport well. I took it to church for a dinner and everyone LOVED it. Thanks for sharing!
