Experiment gone RIGHT!

“Holy f, it doesn’t get any better than this”. This is a direct quote from Mike in regards to my baked creation that I literally dreamt about last night. Now, Mike usually doesn’t like anything even ‘semi-healthy’ for the most part, so for him to state that about this creation, it MUST be good. However, you are going to have to wait until the end of this post to see what I concocted! 😉

As stated in my morning post, lunch was catered at work today from a local restaurant called D.Brians. I got a turkey sandwich on wheat, with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and light mayo. On the side was a bag of Baked Lays, an apple and a cookie. I swear this week is semi-abnormal. I feel like I have been having tons of baked goods, which I LOVE, but usually don’t have as many as I have had this week. You only live once though, right?

This afternoon I munched on a few handfuls of trail mix, and a few of these guys. (Spiced up the picture a bit, he he)

Super corny, but better than a boring beige desk if you ask me.

Immediately when I got home, I bolted into the kitchen, got out my KitchenAid, and started on my experiment. Due to eating loads of dough **hint hint** I wasn’t extremely hungry for dinner. I had a few bites of Mikes pasta and about half of this Asiago bread.

Followed by a light dinner of exactly what I was craving. A bagel and cream cheese with some honey pretzel twists. I wasn’t able to get to the Farmers Market today, I am in desperate need of some fresh produce, HELP!! 😦

DRUMROLL PLEASE!!!!!

May I present to you, Peanut Butter Banana Bliss Cake with a Peanut Butter Glaze. HOLY MOLY YUM!!!! Out.of.this.world!!!

These photos DO NOT do this guy justice.

The first photo is without glaze. At this point, we tried the cake without the glaze. The banana flavor came out strongest at first, but then you ended with a peanut butter taste.

You definitely do not need to add the glaze, but we both agreed it would be even BETTER with a final addition of a little bit more peanut butter taste coming through. So, I added the ‘glaze’ to a small portion to try (so I didn’t ruin this beauty if it was horrible move).

After this bite was Mike’s now famous comment! This is a must try!!!
