Oh my....Oh, my....oh...my. We have to thank my 6 year old birthday girl for finding this one. "I want a chocolate peanut butter cake, Mommy, with Alice in Wonderland on it and the Cheshire Cat and her kitten...". So I found this recipe to fit the demands. And boy! (or should I say --girl!) Most of what I use is organic, which I think boosts the taste factor in and of itself. But that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a great recipe! I chose to use a generous 2/3 cup of wheat pastry flour and the rest white. I used a scant 2 cups of sugar (crystals from cane juice if you are interested), but otherwise followed the recipe. Oh, I did add some nuts on top of the frosting, crushed peanuts because of Alice (I didn't want the picture of her taking off frosting when I removed her so the nuts made a barrier). And I think I'll do that every time because I thought they were really good with it. I baked it the full 25 minutes, and it is still incredibly moist. It was done, pulling away from the sides of the pan and coming clean with a tester, but still is very moist (even with the wheat flour!). It's sweet, no doubt. But it's not set-your-teeth-on-edge sweet. Everyone enjoyed it, especially the birthday girl!
