Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake in the microwave!

 When I saw this one, I thought OMG Jenn will be able to make cake in her dorm apartment for her roommates ..... as a "Hi - welcome back - I'm your new roommate" present.  But you could have this for dessert tonight - yes it is that quick!

1 cup creamy peanut butter
11/3 cups water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
1 package devil's food cake (18.25 oz./517 g)
2/3 cup English toffee bits

Ganache and Topping 
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
6 mini peanut butter cups, roughly chopped

Place peanut butter in 2-cup/500 mL Micro Pitcher and microwave on high power 30 seconds.

Place water, vegetable oil, vanilla and eggs in base of the Smooth Chopper fitted with the paddle whisk, process until smooth.
Pour cake mix in the 12-cup/2.8 L Wonderlier® Bowl, add liquid mixture, peanut butter and mix until well combined; fold in English toffee bits.

Spray the Tupperware® Stack Cooker 3-Qt./3 L Casserole with cooking spray.
Place a square of waxed paper (12x 12"/30.5 x 30.5 cm) on the bottom of the casserole.
Place the cone in the center and spray lightly with cooking spray.

Add batter and place casserole in microwave on high power for 11 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.  Remember every microwave is different, so use this time as a guide.
Allow to rest 5 minutes, then invert onto a serving platter, remove waxed paper and cone, and cool completely.

Place the heavy cream in Stack Cooker 1 3/4 Qt/1.75 L Casserole and microwave on high for 1 minute or until it starts to bubble.
Add chocolate chips, vanilla and butter and mix until melted and smooth.
Allow to cool. Pour over the cake.
Top with the chopped mini peanut butter cups.

I made something this morning like this with a vanilla cake with sprinkles in the mix and chocolate and caramel pieces in this cooker. I put the "lid" on (even though it doesn't say to". Microwaved on high 6 minutes. Opened lid to let steam out, recovered and put back in for 4 minutes.
Only topped with cocoa and powdered sugar when cooled.
Not as pretty as the devils food with ganache topping - but darn good. Texture of a light pound cake. Jenn already sampled . Now wants the chocolate one too.
