Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Ring…and an afternoon visitor

While making this Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Ring yesterday, I glanced out my kitchen window and noticed that we had a visitor. This visitor didn’t knock on my door and come in for a piece of cake…rather, it just stood happily out in the back yard, munching on twigs.

Here is a picture of my afternoon visitor. (a.k.a. Alaska Moose)

~Enjoy~

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup baking cocoa

3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup peanut butter chips

In large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking cocoa, baking soda and salt.

In a small bowl, beat egg substitute, oil and vanilla. Add to flour mixture.

  3. That cake looks wonderful, and a combo of two of my most favorite flavors. I’ve heard that there are moose here in the Adirondack Mts. of NY, but I have yet to see one. To have one in your back yard must be exciting,… or in AK is it more routine? Nice photo!

  4. Oh nice, a really big peanut butter cup…my favorite combination’s right here!!!! You gotta love living here in Alaska where you can just glance out the window and see a moose..wonder what he was thinking??? I bet he can’t wait for Spring, like the rest of us…:)

  5. Ohhhh … chocolate & peanut butter … WHAT a great combination 😉 and I loved the photo of your visitor, too !

  6. Hey look, I’m in your backyard LOL If I were, I would definitely be coming inside for this cake. I just bought two mini bundt pans, so after scaling down, this recipe would be great to try.

  7. What a beautiful specimen…and the moose is spectacular too!

  8. You can’t miss with a peanut butter and chocolate dessert, and this looks yummy.
    There is also nothing better than baking in our warm cozy kitchens while we get to watch our Alaskan critters right outside our windows.
    Very special moments to tuck away. Thanks Amy.

  9. How cool….we have had moose in this area – but they don’t normally belong here…so its not always a good thing when they are seen (been known to cause some damage and have been on a rampage, I’m assuming from being irritated with the people?)

  10. That looks really good! And love the pic of the moose!

  11. Oh my this is one absolutely gorgeous cake!! Oh and love the moose photo!
