Let’s talk cake!
Lately we’ve been reviewing recipe categories to offer more diversity with options. Believe it or not, we didn’t have a lot of cake recipes years ago. (cue the tears) Cake is one of those things I don’t like to do on a regular basis, but when I do.. I like it to be seamless! Layer cakes can be more tedious and involve even more icing and are just not my style. I personally.. LOVE an effortless sheet cake! It’s quick, easy, no fuss and tastes just as good as the more time consuming layer cakes! If you’re in the same boat, you’ve come to the right place.
I have tons of 1 Bowl Sheet Cake concepts!
I first featured a staple chocolate cake years ago and loved the idea that it didn’t call for vegan eggs, butter, or even a lot of oil. In many ways it’s a minimalist cake and the texture was just perfection. When thinking of the next best flavor to produce, I wanted to explore Peanut Butter M+M’s! Traditional M+M’s are not vegan, but you can find a vegan option by Unreal. You don’t typically see M + M’s in the actual cake itself, so I was intrigued by the concept. Not only does it add crunch to the cake, notes of chocolate, specks of color, but also adds aesthetic appeal.
What’s great about this recipe? Everything! it’s quick, easy, affordable, requires not even a vegan egg, you can find ready made vegan icing at retailers now, you can find Unreal chocolate M+M’s on Amazon, the chocolates provide texture and hints of color, this flavor combo is timeless and good for any season, the cake is buttery soft, it’s great for entertaining, can be made into cupcakes, the peanut butter frosting pulls it all together, it features coconut oil instead of traditional oils, and you could double the recipe to make a tiered cake if desired!
If you’re all about peanut butter, you have to try this new vegan Peanut Butter M + M Sheet Cake!!
