Peanut Butter Cake

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Vyrianna

Wonderfully delicious peanut butter cake best with chocolate frosting, If you make with Reese's Peanut Butter and a milk chocolate frosting, it's very much like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. This recipe makes a smaller 8x8 cake. If you make a triple batch it is enough for one layer in a 12" cake pan with a dozen cupcakes. I also recommend that you use a creamy peanut butter simply because if there is some left over the nuts well get "soggy" in the cake.

Moist and delicious, this is currently being devoured by my DS. I also snuck a little taste and can't wait for my piece later! I used a milk chocolate frosting, as recommended, and this little cake is really something! Easy enough to bake and share, I will tuck this away for a quick homemade cake, ready to serve pretty quickly. Cheers to this cake with a big glass of milk! Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe, Vyrianna.
