I have not created this spectacular 
and Sin Confessing Dessert,
However....
I can promise you,
It's at the top of my list to
consume and more than likely devour 
during a Summer Time,
By the Pool Picnic
Event at my home....!!

I'm sure I won't have any difficulties
finding others willing to indulge with me..!!

Plans have already been discussed
for a Seafood Bake...
This Dessert would be a nice 
finish to a "Healthy" Dinner..?!!

CAKE:
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour (or 1-3/4 cups minus 3-1/2 Tbl whole wheat flour)
1-2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup fat-free milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water
CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER FILLING:
1-3/4 cups cold fat-free milk
1 package (3.4 ounce)  instant vanilla pudding mix
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (I used Jiff Natural)
TOPPING:
2 oz milk chocolate chips
  • Coat two 9-in. round baking pans with cooking spray; line with waxed paper. Coat the paper with cooking spray and sprinkle with flour; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. In a small bowl, combine the milk, egg substitute, oil and vanilla; add to flour mixture. Beat for 2 minutes. Stir in water. Pour into prepared pans.
  • Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.
  • In a large bowl, whisk 1-3/4 cups milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes; let stand 2 minutes or until soft-set. Fold in peanut butter. Add a little milk (2Tbl), if needed.
  • Place bottom layer in trifle bowl (or glass bowl); spread half of filling over cake layer; top with second layer and remaining filling. Chill for 1 hour or until serving.
  • For topping, in a microwave, melt chocolate. Stir until smooth. Drizzle on top of trifle before serving.


Lots of rain in the forecast for PA

Friday morning....

The bright side of a few dreary days of rain,
SPRING is coming!!
