The recipe notes fittingly ask, is the
"Giant Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake" (page 452) a "cake that thinks it's a cookie or a cookie
masquerading as a cake?" My husband and I ate this dessert for
several days, and after we finished every last delicious bite, neither one of
us could rightly answer this question. It doesn't really matter, though, since
no matter how you slice it, or bite into it, the bottom line is how good it
tastes! And making it even more appealing to me was that the recipe does not
call for any added oil or margarine. Not that it isn't rich enough, with ¾ cup
peanut butter, this is a very indulgent dessert, and a little goes a long way.
Besides the peanut butter, the cookie-cake contains maple syrup and brown sugar, soy milk, flour, baking
powder, and vegan chocolate chips. Like I said, this is a very rich treat!
Keeping it "McDougall Friendly" checklist:
whole wheat pastry flour or King Arthur's brand of White Whole Wheat flour
instead of all-purpose (white) flour.
