Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cake (for One)

I’m not going to lie to you. I’m on a pumpkin kick.

It’s the season, what can I say?

Every night, I must have dessert. I eat clean all day, and I will treat myself at the end of the day because I deserve it. However, I’m not a dessert sharing person. Nobody touches my dessert. I’m greedy like that, can you blame me? You won’t when you see what I have in store for you.

I’m an all or nothing kind of gal, so it’s not often that I will buy a pint of ice cream. Nor do I bake cookies, because I can’t just stop at two. So I decided to play around in the kitchen, and bake my own single serving treat.

You could technically share this, but why would you want to do that?
