PB & C Cake
Ah the beauty of peanut butter and chocolate. I have posted about this duo when I made Peanut Butter Cookie Cups, but I think I have just taken it to a new level. This deadly combo is not one that I jump to immediately, but whenever I have it my heart is happy. That is why I love when I know what foods my friends like so I can make them wonderful treats for their birthdays. This weekend was one of my besties b-days and I knew I had to make her a delicious PB & C combo. And being that it was her birthday, cake was appropriate.
I used my favorite staple Chocolate Cake and Vanilla Buttercream. All I did differently was add a cup of Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate Chips to the batter, and 1/2 cup of peanut butter to the buttercream. I decided to make 3 layers in 6 inch cake pans to get the tall and skinny look.
And what would a Peanut Butter and Chocolate cake be if you didn’t chop up Reese’s on top?
Needless to say, it was a hit. An easy was to transform a chocolate cake and vanilla buttercream, into a show stopper!
