    Oh Hannah. Sandwiching peanut butter between anything is a surefire way to win me over, but between caramel mudcake? I seriously want. Do you think it would work as chocolate caramel mudcake, with dark choc instead of white choc to veganise?

  2. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    This is a beautiful thing you’ve done here, Hannah. A bold pioneering move that demands respect. I don’t know that I would have the guts to make a dessert sandwich out of caramel cake and peanut butter, but you my lady, have nothing if not guts.

    sylvia and I have just been feeding each other pieces of your cake and decided it is very nice – though of course we didn’t have it with peanut butter though I love your idea! Am sure your father will be very pleased with his cake

    Oh. My. God. Cake and peanut butter = best lunch EVER! Hell, best MEAL ever. This is by far the most beautiful thing I’ve seen all day. I actually started making a cake this afternoon and then realized that my oven was unplugged, boo!

      Kate – I couldn’t agree with you more!! My mouth is watering!!

  5. Jamee

    Hannah – what I *really* want to know is: How do you stay so teeny tiny with your love of great food?! Great genetics? Is it something in the Australian water? Is it a blogger secret? Do tell!! 😉

    I cannot believe how amazingly delicious this cake sounds, even though I can’t eat a single ingredient in it! Just the kind of concoction I would have loved back in my “eat anything” days. . . lucky you. 😀

  7. Jo

    I want me soommmmmeeee!!! drizzled with chocolate fudge plz!

  8. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    HAHAH, you crack me up. cake + pb sounds heavenly!!!

    (btw, sorry i’ve been so late with my blog reading! just started work again this week. getting ready to teach again!)

  9. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    There I was thinking that the ideal day was described in your previous post, starting with cake and hide and seek for breakfast. Oh, how wrong! Clearly, the ideal day would have to include this sandwich for lunch.

    I wonder how it would work with chocolate mud cake? 😛

  10. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Just add in some marshmallow fluff and this would be THE BEST FLUFFERNUTTER IN THE WORLD EVER.

    And naturally eggless and could-be-dairy-free? With white chocolate and golden syrup? BOOKMARKED.

    Oh dear me, this makes me love you such a lot (like….more than usual) because it’s SO something i would do. In fact, it’s something i DID do with the brownies i made last weekend 😀 hahah great minds….uhhh….die of diabetes alike? :p

  12. Margaret

    That’s my kind of cake. I’m not sure if this is the right place to confess, but I prefer caramel, toffee and butterscotch flavours to chocolate!

  13. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    haha now that is a sandwich! I wonder if I can get away with serving that for lunch under the definitions act or 1983? 😛

    OK there is no definitions act but if you say something lawyerly enough people will let you do it 😉

  14. Miss Adriennely

    Oh my, so sinful!!

  15. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Gee, that really did look deceptively wholesome until I found out what it was and checked out the list of ingredients! You devious woman, you. :p

  16. Anna johnston

    How the heck do you stay so thin and gorgeous my dearest? I couldn’t stop at just one sandwich, I’d have to eat the whole ‘loaf’. I was playing around with a banana slice the other day and ended up with this glorious babana sandwich. Mmmmmm…. Right, I’ve gotta go find food to satisfy my need to eat peanut butter. Xx

  17. msihua

    How are you still so skinny??????!!!!

  18. Camille

    I think the dessert sandwich is a highly underrated genre, and way underrepresented on dessert menus today. I’ll be doing my best to change that. 🙂

  19. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Everybody (female) in my family (except me, ha) has something like an always-work-well cake. (At least I can cook well, even if I suck at baking. ;)) Anyway, with my grandmom on my mom’s side, it’s either Frankfurter Kranz – a sponge mixture layered and coated with buttercream – or Sandtorte (sand tarte ???), made from flour and starch and lots of butter and sugar with a slight hint of lemon. As a child, I especially loved when it got soggy, and your cake exactly looks like that! Mmmmmmmm! If there just wasn’t that flour and sugar in it … I’d totally rave now. (Sorry, your know I’m thinking in practical terms nowadays – yay food allergies. :?)

  20. Miri Leigh

    Oh my goodness, this might just be the best sandwich I have ever seen. What a treat!

  21. Priyanka

    I am definitely making this next week. Mud cake sandwich…how good does that sound. I closed my eyes and could imagine nutella in between the mudcake slices. Can you suggest a substitute for golden syrup? (I really envy you, Nigella uses a lot of golden syrup too. Wish i could find some)

  22. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    oh my – this is freakin’ awesome!

  23. Three-Cookies

    This looks amazing. Peanut butter caramel sandwich. I am sure bacon and eggs will go well with that bread as well:)

  24. Nic@diningwithastud

    Genius!! Nuff’ said 🙂

  25. Rach

    Oooh looks delicious!

  26. Katy

    I have no words.

    Except: I just decided what I’m making for Friday’s work morning tea.

  27. Mike

    Holy holy holy. You have hit the spot with this one Hannah. I have a crowd of people standing behind me at a Woden library computer station wondering why I am sitting here drooling profusely! They want to get into the peanut butter too. I said “no way – the jar was 3/4 empty yesterday and is now completely empty – Hannah used the remainder on her mouse traps”.

    And you are right about the Americans loving such a treat. Elvis would have gone bananas over it. Now where can I get a piece of the action? Please!

  28. Adrian (Food Rehab)

    I like the way you think yo! It’s like a meal and dessert in one. BAM!

    And I bet there would be some of that yummo peanut butter for a midnight snack as well?!

  29. whisperinggums

    White chocolate isn’t dairy free though is it … more’s the pity. Somehow it feels like it would lose something with dark choc…but maybe it would gain something else?

  30. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    Being of the peanut butter hating brigade, I cannot condone your choice of spread, your idea however of a cake sandwich is highly meritorious. I’m thinking nutella would make an excellent nut based spread alternative, with the added bonus of chocolate. And who doesn’t like a chocolate caramel combo?

  31. Chanel

    This is the most brilliant thing I have seen all day – nay, for a while!

  32. Kath Lockett

    Whoah – and to think that I’m reading this whilst eating day-old bread (from our local boulangerie) with peanut butter and creamed honey – a poor substitute for your sandwich!

  33. Libby

    OH MAN! You can’t even begin to imagine how excited I was when I saw the title of this post.

    Whenever it’s someone’s birthday at my work, the birthday person gets to choose a cake from The Cheesecake Shop and I ALWAYS choose the caramel mudcake. I’ve been wanting to make my own for quite some time so I shrieked with glee when I saw that you posted a recipe. I think I’ll make this, and spread the salted caramel spread that I bought from Burch and Purchese all over it. Yum! 🙂

  34. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    Best sandwich in history!!! Now I want to go make one with banana bread and Nutella…

  35. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Hannah, you’re one ambitious lady! I take my hat off to you, because I think this may be too intense for me. I know, I know, I hear you, saying “intensely delicious!”…maybe one day I could handle this. I do trust you after all!

    Dinner date dinner date DINNER DATE?!?!

  37. Alisa Fleming

    Oh my, you are keeling me! That is such an amazing idea! Definitely lunch worthy. hehe.

    Hannah, of course this was a fun read. But more importantly, I want you to know what great influence you hold in your world. I read this on the bus on the way home from work on Monday arvo. Being an obsessed baker and being smack bang in the middle of doing cakes for the farewell of a lovely young woman at work who is leaving to have her first baby, I had all of the ingredients at home. So, I got home and made your cake. I have used much of it to make baby building blocks to go alongside the main cake, but all the trimmed off bits of cake, I made, you guessed it, peanut butter caramel mud cake sangers. Definitely a taste sensation, not sure that it was the healthiest lunch EVER, but it was definitely a yummy one that made me laugh. That’s got to be good, no? Thanks for sharing.

    Continuing my golden syrup streak, I made this tonight! Except I had to take it out after just 45 minutes because I smelled it burning. The bottom turned black 🙁 but the rest of it is DELICIOUS! I wonder if you Aussies’ ovens are different from ours somehow?
