Baked Sunday Mornings: Double Chocolate Loaf Cake with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Spread


This post is a little late for the Baked Sundays, but I wanted to participate in these blog groups more than I have lately. They have been sneaking up on me and catching me unprepared.... and I have been intending to cook more with vegetables and grains in an effort to eat better. But then this cake came up on the schedule and it's chocolate. And it's got peanut butter with it. I had to make it. Unfortunately, it didn't want to come out of the pan. In an attempt to make the best of a bad situation, I cut a slice in half and spread the peanut butter cream cheese one one side to make a little sandwich. It was delicious. I'll definitely be trying this recipe again; it reminds me of Dorie Greenspan's World Peace Cookies- there's cocoa powder, chocolate chunks, brown sugar and a generous amount of salt. This just happens to be soft (and in my case, crumbly) instead of crispy and crumbly. Same flavors, different application. You can never have too many options for your chocolate, can you?

There will be other pictures of beautiful chocolate loaf cakes on the Baked Sunday Mornings home page. Check out what this treat was supposed to look like and get the recipe there, too!


  1. Aw, that's too bad that your loaf cake wouldn't come out of the pan- that's happened to me too many times to count! I love the idea of making it into a sandwich though- great idea!

  2. I love that you smeared the peanut butter cream cheese spread in the middle ... (my mini loaves stuck as well ... I figured it was because I over filled them). I did like this loaf - but Dori's World Peace cookies is the recipe that makes the best use of chocolate ... at least in my opinion :0)

  3. I have missed you at both groups! I would have never known it was an Oomph! if you hadn't had said, Christina. It looks terrific and I love that you thought to just make slices of the loaf and use the spread in the middle. Just perfect!

  4. I can not wait to make this it looks SO delicious! :)
