I will be visiting my sister soon and we got on the subject of food. She told me about this really awesome recipe she found for peanut butter cake (with peanut butter icing of course) and it sounded totally delicious. I got the recipe from her and have converted all the ingredients over to a lovely dairy free version. We’re going to make one while I am visiting this weekend. I’ll let you know how it turns out. In the mean time, you can make one yourself!
