We have had a busy October visiting relatives and doing lots of outings. Last weekend was our first weekend with nothing planned so we grabbed the opportunity to spend it relaxing as a family. It was so nice to have an unscheduled day where we could just play and enjoy each others company. One of the things we did was a big family baking session. Hublet and I are trying to lose weight but with the cold weather all we have wanted to do is eat cake and we succumbed to that desire and broke out Hublet's cook book Baked in America.
We decided to make a peanut butter sponge cake. It has all your basic ingredients for a regular sponge cake, and then you add melted butter and peanut butter. We hadn't appreciated how much bigger American recipes make things and because a lot of it was done in cups rather than weight measurements it was hard to tell at a glance from the recipe that the cake was going to be enormous.
But it became apparent as we progressed with the recipe that we'd be needing a bigger bowl.
The finished cake was ridiculous in size, but tasted absolutely amazing.
Needless to say the diet went out the window for the best part of the week.
