Anyway, I do have a good excuse for not taking a single picture of this cake. That is because it was for a Lasagna Night dinner with some friends of ours. They supplied the lasagna and garlic bread, and our house supplied the salad and dessert. So basically, I didn't want to act too strange and go through my overly thorough food-picture-taking rituals as a guest in someone's house. :)
However, do not fear! This cake will definitely be made again since....
2. It was amazingly delicious.
3. Okay, I'll admit, I just really want to take some close-ups of this beauty. ;)
So this cake definitely surprised me with the fact that the crumbs ended up being baked into the cake, rather than staying on top. I really didn't expect this to happen, however, the outcome was quite delicious. I mean, crumble in your cake? That's just yummy-sounding, if you ask me.
Peanut Butter Crumble Cake
1 box yellow cake mix...which means you'll also need eggs, oil, and water, but the quantity of these ingredients depend on which boxed cake you get.
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 granulated sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup peanut butter...creamy, please
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13x9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Prepare cake according to directions on the back of the box. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Prepare crumbs. In a large bowl, whisk together sugars, cinnamon, salt and butter until smooth. Stir in flour with a spatula. It will look like a solid dough. Delicious dough.
Using your fingers, break crumb mixture into big crumbs, about 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch in size. Sprinkle over cake. Sprinkle chocolate chips over crumble and batter.
Bake in preheated oven according to time indicated on back of cake mix box for a 13x9-inch pan. Remove from oven until toothpick comes out relatively clean. Devour and enjoy.
