Hump Day Snack: Peanut Butter and Jelly Lava Cakes

By: Jamie Lisanti

It’s peanut butter jelly time! That’s right: April 2 is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, which means there’s no better time to celebrate the irresistible childhood combination of smooth and nutty paired with sweet and fruity, all pressed together between two slices of bread. Believed to have hit popularity just after World War II, PB&J is one duo we know we won’t be “consciously uncoupling” anytime soon. This year, ditch the lunch box and go with a grown-up version of the age-old classic sandwich with this recipe for Peanut Butter and Jelly Lava Cakes. Just grab a bowl and a whisk to make the peanut butter cake — no mixer required — and in 15 minutes, you’ll be dipping into the warm, gooey peanut butter center as it oozes out over a pool of sweet Concord grape sauce. The only thing missing is an ice-cold glass of milk.
