National Peanut Butter Day and Single Gal Desserts

Happy National Peanut Butter Day y’all!
Yep, we all know that I am a peanut butter addict. Well, if you didn’t know, know y’all know. 🙂 I recently had a breakdown. Like…yesterday. Afternoon, to be exact. I have been keeping a little secret…I gave up peanut butter at the beginning of the new year. I know. I know. Don’t look at me like that. I have been having stomach issues with legumes so I thought I might eliminate my beloved peanut butter for a bit. Well…23.5 days strong and yesterday…breakdown! 
It probably wasn’t helpful that at any given time I could open my pantry to find 8 jars of different flavored peanut butter. In other news, I’m a single gal and because my peanut butter emotions were on full blast I needed something quick, delicious, and preferably dessert like to satisfy my peanut butter tooth. 1 minute. Presto. Finished.
We begin with a chocolate peanut butter cake batter. 
We are making this for #1, remember? That means we get to be selfish. 

Of course you can share a couple of bites with your people. 
My people are my parents. They were delighted.

Whaddup peanut butter frosting?

Seriously irresistible. 

I can’t even tell you how salivating this thing is. 

All done in a microwave?
This is totally unheard of. 

With dessert like this hopefully a man will come running my way. 
No, sprinting. 🙂

As for now, I will eat my single gal cake with my single gal spoon anytime of the day that I want!

Any questions?
Please tell me you love peanut butter as much as I do?
Wait, wait…it’s gluten-free.
