Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake reminds me of one of first cakes I ever made for Emery. When we started dating I wanted to ?WOW? him with my baking skills so I made him a chocolate peanut butter cake. I picked this cake for two reasons 1) it was one of his favorite flavor combinations and 2) even if it wasn?t one of his favorite flavors it was going to be?LOL! You just can?t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter. It was his birthday; I made the cake and showed up at his work to give it to him. One of the few times I attempted at being romantic.  When I presented the cake to him he couldn?t have been happier! The cake was perfect it looked beautiful and it tasted even better.
It makes me smile to think that a cake can bring back such a fond memory. That is one of the reasons I love baking.  You just never know when something is going to make a lasting impression on someone or yourself. Maybe this chocolate peanut butter cake will make a lasting impression on someone special in your life.

Start by making the peanut butter icing. The longer this icing gets to sit the lighter and fluffier it tastes. I usually make it a day ahead and leave it sit on the counter overnight. But no worries if you don?t have time to make it that far in advance it will still taste great.
The cake is pretty simple. Place your wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls. Mix the wet ingredients and then add your dry slowing as you stir. I did not use an electric mixer for this cake I mixed everything with a whisk. If you do use an electric mixer do so on low speed. Once the batter has been thoroughly mixed place it in two 9? round cake pans that have been sprayed with non-stick release spray and then lightly floured.  Bake cake at 350° for 22-25 minutes.

Let cake cool completely and then remove from pans. Cut cakes in half and layer with peanut butter icing in between each layer. I only did 3 layers for my cake but you can do 4 if you would like. Once all of your layers are assembled ice the cake with a crumb layer first. Place the cake in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes before doing the finishing icing.
I placeed peanut butter cup candies on the cake for decoration but that is optional.

The cake will serve 8 to 10 people. Cut, serve, and Enjoy.
Happy Baking!!
