PB & Jelly Cake

Serves: 6

Happy Friday! I hope you have had an amazing week! For me, this week has been insanely busy, but awesome! Not only because I got to enjoy the Celtics/Knicks game Tuesday night AND celebrate the one year anniversary of Ingredients Of A Fit Chick with you on Wednesday, but……this Sunday is my birthday! Yes, yes it is!! I am a HUGE birthday person! I don’t know why I love them so much, but I do! Honestly, I enjoy celebrating other people’s birthday’s more than my own (ask the boyfriend about his banners, balloons and matching party napkins! haha)!

Not only is it MY birthday on Sunday, but it is also my sister’s birthday too! No, we are not twins. We have the same birthday, but she is 2 yrs younger than me! Crazy, huh?! My parents say she is the best birthday present I ever got! ? Although, we won’t be celebrating together since she is in AZ, I want to send her a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY shout out!

In honor of our birthday (s) I decided to make ‘us’ a PB & J cake!! We are both HUGE peanut butter fans and well, what goes better with peanut butter other than chocolate (which I wasn’t in the mood for)….JELLY!! :) Oh Yes!!! PB & J cake!!! Nope, I didn’t frost the cake because I would rather enjoy a nice big bowl of froyo along side my cake! Frosting and froyo is overkill for me, but feel free to frost if you’d like!

You’re also probably wondering why I am posting this today and not on Sunday? Well, I am taking the weekend to enjoy my birthday and step away from the social network ‘sphere’ for a few days! But don’t worry, I will be back with another delicious recipe on Monday!!! I hope you enjoy this recipe and have an amazing weekend!!

O.M.G!!! This is just like eating a PB and J sandwich! The peanut butter cake layers mimic that of soft, fresh bread and then you have the sweet berries in the middle that just melt in your mouth! It doesn’t get any better than this! It makes me feel like a kid again….a kid with extra protein that is! ? This is so healthy you could literally eat it for breakfast too!
