Halloween Leftovers Cake

Shar chose "different" recipes this week and this sounded fantastic for using up some of that candy that was piling up in the kitchen! I noticed the kids weren't touching the Reeces pb cups so I used those for the full two cups...I think I should have gone for variety.

It isn't a super sweet cake...I'm guessing the candy is supposed to make up for that but pb cups really didn't. Shar added a glaze to hers and that is a great idea! I used vanilla yogurt instead of plain because the organic was on sale and I couldn't find "ww pastry flour" so I used whole wheat regular flour.

Halloween leftovers cake


2 cups coarsely chopped chocolate or candy

1 cup flour

1 3/4 cups whole-wheat pastry flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup plain yogurt


Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a tube pan (10-12 cup capacity) and dust with flour. Sift together flours and baking soda; set aside. In large bowl, cream butter and sugar until soft. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. On low speed, alternate adding dry ingredients with yogurt, scraping bowl as necessary. Add candy and fold in gently. Bake 1 hour or until tests done. Cool 15 minutes. Cover pan with rack and invert.
