Pete had a birthday last week and we made him a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. I used my go-to cake recipe from my PDF that I have on my fridge.
For the frosting, I used a half-batch of this recipe. Next time I'll add a little salt to the frosting. The peanut butter I used was a natural creamy kind, which is very tasty but needed a little salt to balance how sweet this frosting was. This cake was very well received with a little vanilla ice cream on the side. It's super-rich and wonderful, a little goes a long ways. I didn't have any peanuts to garnish the top, so some raw sugar got sprinkled on instead for a nice crunch.
