Recipe by Jellyqueen
READY IN: 50mins




  • CAKE: Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • In a large bowl, mix butter and brown sugar.
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  • Add chocolate and vanilla and beat well.
  • Sift flour, baking soda and salt together and add to creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream.
  • Gradually beat in water.
  • Pour into two greased and flored 9" round baking pans.
  • Bake for 35- 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in pan, then remove and place on wire rack to cool completely.
  • FROSTING: Cream butter, peanut butter, confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla in bowl until smooth.
  • If needed for desired consistency, add 1 teaspoon of milk at a time to get the frosting you desire.
  • Place bottom layer of cake on cake plate and spread top with peanut butter frosting.
  • Place next layer on top and frost sides, then top of the cake with the frosting.
  • (The original recipe calls for spitting the 2 layers and making 4. I leave my cake in 2 layers. I'm lazy!) Once cake is frosted, sprinkle chopped honey roasted peanuts on top or press them onto the sides of the cake.
