anyway, i'm making a chocolate cake with peanut frosting (i just made it now to make sure i can do it right, no longer living at high altitude):
2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cup four
1 cup cocoa
~1 1/2 tsp baking powder
~1 1/2 tsp baking soda
~1 tsp salt
1 banana, mashed
3/4 - 1 cup water
1/3 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup boiling water
mix together, first the dry, then adding the liquids. plus more flour is necessary.
bake at 350 for 35 minutes....my oven doesn't work right so it took like 45 or more minutes, i just kept an eye on it and took it out when it was done.
1 cup confectionary sugar
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup water
heat on stove, stirring until blended. let sit for about 30 seconds or until it starts to thicken. cook for another 30 seconds, stirring together, then remove from heat.
when frosting and cake are cooled, paint cake with frosting and serve!
it tastes sort of like a peanut butter cup, in cake form.
i'm also making either a chili, or this butternut squash and roasted garlic soup. i'll post the recipe(s) when i decide which to make. i'm real neurotic when it comes to serving people food, especially when it's vegan food prepared for non-vegans, so i always gotta make a batch a day or two before to make sure i did it right.
sorry i don't have any pictures, i don't have a camera.
do any of you have good potluck suggestions, or things you bring to potlucks most often?
