Favourite sandwich as a kid? Definitely peanut butter and jelly! My dad used to make us peanut butter and bologna, which sounds disgusting but strangely wasn’t, but PB&J always came in first. Peanut butter and honey was a close second, and peanut butter and banana rounded up the top three. In case you didn’t figure it out, obviously I have a love for peanut butter!
This cake is such a fun one to surprise everyone with. It’s giant, and seriously looks like a regular sized sandwich. I’ve been planning to make a cake like this for a long time, so a couple months ago, I found a sandwich cake mold to use for it. You definitely don’t need to have a special mold though. It can easily be baked in a square pan (8″x8″) and when it has cooled, carve out the top with a couple of little notches and you’ll basically have the same thing.
I decided to make a peanut butter cake for the “bread” instead of a standard vanilla cake which would make the “bread” look like white bread. The peanut butter cake makes the cake look like whole wheat “bread’, which is obviously healthier. So this cake is healthy as it’s a sandwich made with whole wheat bread. If you make it with vanilla cake, the white bread will go straight to your hips.
