Decadent chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting is a rich, moist masterpiece that will delight the peanut butter & chocolate lover in your family.
This decadent chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting is perfect for anyone who loves the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. The chocolate cake layers are moist, dense and chocolatey, and the frosting is rich, fluffy and peanut buttery!
The cake layers are made from my favorite Quadruple Chocolate Bundt Cake recipe~but instead of baking in a bundt pan, I use three 8-inch round cake pans. Although the standard 9-pans will work, the smaller pans make a taller, prettier cake.
I made the cake layers a few days before Easter and froze them until I was ready to assemble and frost the cake. To make this cake to serve the same day, I recommend flash freezing the layers for at least an hour. This makes handling and frosting the cake much easier.
Note: I used crunchy peanut butter for the buttercream, as it was all that I had in the pantry. It turned out fine, but smooth would work just as well. The frosting recipe is slightly adapted from JavaCupcake.
I hope you’ll try this cake; if so, please let me hear back from you in the comments! Thank you so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
