5 tbsp canola oil

Preparation Process

Pour the dry ingredients and wet ingredients into separate bowls and stir

Mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients together and stir.

Coat a cake tin with the canola, then sprinkle the cocoa powder on top until the tin is completely powdered.

Pour the batter into the tin, smooth the top and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

While the cake bakes, add the margarine and shortening to a large bowl, then pour in the agave and peanut butter. Stir the ingredients together, either by hand or with a blender, then stir in the sugar until all the ingredients are completely mixed.

Remove the cake from the oven, let cool and cut off the excess cake skin so that the cake is level with the cake tin. Flip the cake upside-down, frost and serve
