Hi everyone,.

I've got a recipe to share that I really like. It's inspired by Orangeblood's cake, and borrows from rljaegers' chocolate muffins and Vowl's Awesome Fudge. I first made it for my sister's birthday (rljaegers, who is also on Medifast) and we both really liked it. It's fairly quick to make, makes 8 servings, and freezes well. Each serving counts for one meal and 1/2 a snack (for the PB2)..

First make the cake layers:.

Preheat oven to 350, & spray two round layer cake pans with Pam.

Mix 1 pkg eggs with 1/2 cup sugar free chocolate syrup (Da Vinci or other), 1 cup of water and two teaspoons vanilla. Let that sit for 10 minutes.

While the eggs are soaking, mix the dry ingredients:.

3 pkgs. oatmeal (I used apple cinnamon).

1 pkg. chocolate pudding.

4 T. ground flax meal.

4 t. baking powder.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Divide between the cake pans and bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on rack..

After cakes are cooled, make the filling. Mix together:.

1 pkg. vanilla pudding.

6 T. PB2.

2 T. Splenda.

2/3 cup water (or enough to make a spreadable consistency).

Spread this on one of the cakes and place the other cake on top..

Then make the frosting. Mix together:.

1 pkg. chocolate pudding.

1 pkg. hot cocoa.

2 T. PB2.

1 T. Splenda.

1 T. vanilla.

3 T. sugar free chocolate syrup.

1/4 cup water.

Spread this on top of the cake.

Hope you all like it!..

OMG that looks sooooooooo devine. How did it taste? Now I'm really thinking about ordering that PB2. thanks for this post. It will be grat for me to try this recipe when I get my new order in... Thanks for posting it and the picture...

You know, I was thinking there are probably some good variations that could be done with this recipe, without using the PB2. You could just use plain vanilla pudding in the center, or mix it with cherry syrup or almond or coconut. Or maybe fat free cream cheese? Or maybe a layer of Walden Farms fruit spread between the layers? I think I'll try one of those next!..

Hey, I'm Sandy's sister and I can attest that this may be the best recipe item I've tried! I love the ice cream and I love my bread recipe but this is like cheating it's so good. The size of the pan is the 8 or 9 inch rounds. She will post later because she is at work now. I'm telling you, you got to try this recipe! Jan, if you read this, you can tell them how good it is!..

Comment #3

I am so tempted to make it, but fear I'll eat the whole thing in one day.

I'll have to be brave and make it...then divide it up into 2 meals over 4 days and freeze it because I know I'll just want to keep eating it all in one day...

Comment #4

I am bumping this up again. You really need to try it...

Comment #5

So how many meals does this make? sorry, looks like a lot of product is used. also looks fabulous...

Comment #6

Yes I got to try the Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Cake. It was unbelieviable. I could not believe that it was part of the diet. It's so good that I was almost afraid of eating it. I had to keep telling myself that it was part of the diet! Try it you will love it. Jan from Loose Creek, Missouri...

Oops - just made the cake following my own directions, and noticed a typo for the peanut butter cream filling. Use 1/3 cup of water instead of 2/3 cup (or just enough to make it spreadable - you don't want it too thin or it will run all over the place!) I've been having this for breakfast nearly every day, and feeling very decadent!..

Comment #8

QUick question...the Tablespoons of PB2 for the that pre-mixed or still in the powder form?.



Comment #9

I can answer that for Sandy, she's my sister, dry! You will enjoy this cake, she made it for my birthday...

Comment #10

Are you freakin' kidding me!!!!!! Where were you when I had a birthday party on Sunday?? ROFL I didn't see this so I had cocoa muffins instead of cake. But I didnt cheat!!!.

OMG! You are a genious and IMHO should be standing next to OrangeBlood, JudyO, rljaegers', Vowls and the rest who have come before us as a Medi-Chef Extraordinaire JUST because of THIS recipe!!! It looks like you get a big piece too..

YOU ROCK!!!!! OMG... I am gonna try to break this in half and use my daughter's Easy Bake Oven Pans to make individual servings. Or maybe I will just make the whole darn recipe and eat it EVERYDAY!!!!!.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!..

Comment #11

ROFLMBOPMP over the easy bake oven pans. I keep joking about buying an easy bake oven. the baking portions are so small, I feel like a giant playing in a little girls world.

Ok, back to readin...

Comment #12

What about if you don't have Medifast eggs?? How much egg beaters or whites would I use and how much liquid?? Can anyone help? Thanks!! ).

Have a great day!.


Comment #13

When I subsitute egg whites for Medifast eggs in recipes, I usually use 2 egg whites for 1 pkg. Medifast eggs. I haven't tried that with this recipe, but I don't know why that wouldn't work. You might have to experiment a little, but I would guess 2-3 egg whites would be about the same.

And Momtolissa - you really made me laugh! I loved your post. I hope you like the cake. I eat it pretty much every day now, sometimes twice!..

Comment #14

Ok DogDazed... Not only are you giving me this most incredible recipe... You are telling me I can actually have this MORE THAN ONCE A DAY???.

Seriously?? Would I be going over the Medi-Police Speed Limit with this or will it really fit in plan?.

I gotta get me some of that PB2 stuff Chicks... But, I am so worried it will be a trigger for me. I LOOOOOOOVE Peanut Butter... And if you have never tried Sunflower Seed Nut Butter OMG!!! TO DIE FOR!!!.

Thanks for the inspiration here kids...

Comment #15

OK - so no Medifast eggs == I use 2 to 3 egg whites.

How much do I decrease the amount of water by?.

If I have no PB2, will this still work?.

If I have no ground Flax seed, will this still work?..

Comment #16

Momtolissa - you crack me up! Medi-Police Speed Limit? I love it!.

I think two pieces per day is legal - each piece has one tablespoon of PB2, and you can have two tablespoons a day for a snack, so I think each piece is 1 meal and 1/2 of a snack. Personally, I've broken the speed limit a time or two, and don't actually pay much attention to the condiment limit, especially for the DaVinci syrups...

Comment #17

Fluffymom - I don't really know how much water you'd use with egg whites instead of Medifast eggs. I haven't tried it that way before. I'd try about 1/4 cup less water and see what the batter looks like. It should be about the consistency of regular cake batter. I use the flax seed meal to give it a little more cakey texture, but I think it'd be fine without it. You could probably just drop the PB2 all together if you want, and just use pudding as a filling.

Or you could add some regular peanut butter instead, if you still want it peanut-buttery. You'd probably want to use less, say 4 tablespoons in the filling and none in the frosting. That'd still be 1/2 snack per piece that way...

Comment #18

Thank you dogdazed - I appreciate it! I am trying to limit purchasing all of the "extras" - I have already bought the capella flavor drops and I am waiting for a shipment of Walden Farms. Maybe PB2 will be next month! Thanks again!..

Comment #19

This sounds SO good, but a little more complicated than I'm ready to take on! Maybe someone will make it and invite me over!..

Comment #20

My husband is on Medifast, as well, and his birthday is coming up. I'm thinking Chinese Fried "Rice" for dinner, this amazing cake (complete with candles, of course!), and dbbthread's ice cream for dessert! It might take us several hours to get through all the food, but hopefully he won't feel too bummed about eating "healthy" on his birthday!.

Thanks for the recipe! I can't wait to try it!..
