      Well let’s hope not in the wrong direction though! LOL…we strive to be healthy eaters around here..which may be why my husband made me freeze the cake so we didn’t eat it all. I plan on defrosting it today though!

    Aww! Sounds like you are going to have fun with the little guy!

    And that chocolate peanut butter layer cake thing looks grand, too. I might just have to make one as soon as these kitchen renovations are through…it’ll be a good way to celebrate!

      Buttermilk is my not-so-secret ingredient in just about everything. Seriously awesome. I keep a litre of it in the fridge at all times.

    Hi! I’m making this wonderful cake for a friend of mine…but realized that you wrote 1 tsp of vanilla and I was wondering if you mean vanilla bean or extract..

    • Elizabeth
      October 17, 2011

      Extract! But a whole vanilla bean would be even better.

    Could you please direct me to the recipe for that wonderful looking layered thing located on your banner at the top of the page under the word “paleo”? Thank you.
