Secret Recipe Club Reveal: 3 Recipes, 1 post

It's that time of the month again....a day that I do look forward to. It's Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day for Group D. I have enjoyed being a part of this group for almost the last year. I've found and enjoyed many new recipes, and new blogs that I like to follow and read. It's a great group. There are four groups A-D, all with at least 30 bloggers posting...multiply that and you get A LOT of recipes to check out each month. 

This month I received the blog Beautiful Disasters written by an amazing young lady named Casey. She started this blog when she was just a teenager. I found that she has many interests that my own daughter's have. Playing H.S. and Club soccer, eating healthy and taking care of her body. She seems like a sweet gal. I actually seemed to have extra time this month and found 3 fairly simple recipes that I wanted to try so I just went ahead and did it. Made all three of them and I'm happy to say they were all three a success. Head over to her blog and show her some love. 

Since I made 3 recipes I'll post the recipe for the first one and the links for the other 2. Please be sure to go visit those recipes as well. You won't be disappointed.

The first recipe I tried was for her Chocolate Layered Peanut Butter Cupcakes. My daughter was having some friends over to the house to play games so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to make them and not have any left in the house.

1 1/2  c. flour
1/3 c. baking cocoa
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 c. water
1 Tbs. white vinegar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese
3/4 c. peanut butter
1/3 c. white sugar (I use organic cane sugar)
1/3 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. peanut butter chips
1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips


Heat oven to 350. Line or grease 18 muffin cups. In a large bowl flour, cocoa, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. Add oil, water, vinegar and vanilla to flour mixture. Stir just until smooth.
In a separate bowl beat egg, peanut butter, cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat until creamy.
Spoon one tablespoon chocolate batter in to each cup. Spread 1 Tbs. peanut butter batter on top. Repeat layers, ending with Peanut butter layer. Sprinkle with peanut butter and chocolate chips.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes. Remove on to cooling rack. 
These got rave reviews from all the kids who came over. They were so good and moist with wonderful flavor.
The second recipe I made was for chocolate avocado pudding. This was yummy and VERY rich! You will not know the avocado is there so give it a try.
The third recipe was for her White Wheat Batter Bread. This was super simple and tasted really yummy!
So three successful SRC recipes! It helped that the last two were super quick to make. 

Check out these other recipes:

With Joy UNquenchable,

  5. Wowzers!!! Three recipes, you truly are a rockstar! So happy they turned out well for you, I loved having your blog :) Thank you so much for the kind post

    1. It was fun having yours as well! And like I said they were pretty simple recipes but all ones I wanted to try :)

  6. I can just imagine your daughter and her friend loved these. They look amazing too!

  7. Chocolate and peanut butter--a marriage made in heaven. You are quite industrious making not one, not two, but three SRC picks--very impressive! The chocolate avocado pudding sounds really intriguing.

    1. The pudding was very rich. I'd serve it next time with some creamy whipped topping or something to balance the richness. But it was very good.

  8. You are my hero making THREE recipes for SRC! I always want to make more than one recipe from my assigned blog but I either run out of time or I move onto another project and never get back to those additional recipes I wanted to try out. But yes, scrumptious cupcakes that now i must make myself!

    1. Well, these were pretty simple recipes (the last two). They were yummy

  9. Those cupcakes look insanely good! I am such a big chocolate-and-peanut butter fan. Yum!

  10. Those cupcakes seriously sound like heaven in a cup. Good for you for taking on 3 recipes!!

  13. Wow!! Three recipes...way to go! The avocado brownies sounds really interesting....I've heard of them before..will have to give it a try! Great SRC picks!

  14. Oh my goodnes, Kirstin. I shouldn't have checked this out first thing in the morning - those Layered Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes are calling my name. I love that shot of the cupcake sliced in half - it looks so moist and perfectly layered - pinning this for a baking project over the weekend!
