Peanut Butter and Chocolate Mini Cake

Simply Sweet 'n Savory linked this recipe to Bake With Bizzy and I had to try it out.  I never believe these recipes work and this one said a cake emerged after 30 seconds.  Impossible.

Actually mine did take about 60 seconds to finish baking but it did bake beautifully and came out as a real cake.  I took this one cake to my class and cut it up for three of the boys to taste.  I told them, I had not even tasted it yet and had no idea if it was wonderful or terrible and I wanted them to be honest in their evaluation.  I just didn't expect anything great from this cake, not when it baked in a microwave for a minute.  Now way - this could be good.

It turned out to be a SUCCESS and each of the boys loved it.  Yes, they would have told me, if they did not like it.  My gratitude to Simply and Sweet and Savory for making my boys, happy campers.  I tasted the cake with the boys and I will agree readily with my students.
