Rich, dark chocolate cake layers with whipped peanut butter frosting.
Back in my kitchen after the holidays and kicking off 2016 with one of my favorite flavor combinations: chocolate and peanut butter! Seriously, how can you go wrong with those two flavors? You can’t. It’s a classic combination, and one that will please just about everyone’s taste buds.
For this cake, I made my dark chocolate cake layers and paired it with a whipped peanut butter frosting. I decided to go with a slightly lighter frosting that uses whipped cream because the cake itself is so rich. I have another peanut butter frosting that I like, but it uses cream cheese and I felt like that might be too heavy with this cake. I think you’ll love this frosting. I made sure to save myself a little to top cake scraps with, but I ended up just eating the left over frosting straight from a spoon. No shame.
