A few weeks ago I decided to try this triple layer chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting, and that's when I decided anyone in the world who loves chocolate, or cake, or peanut butter, needs to make it. Oh, you will die. And it is so. easy.
This rich and chocolatey recipe is from Smitten Kitchen, phenomenal cake mistress.
There is moist, dark, flavorful, chocolate cake.
And thick, creamy, peanut butter cream cheese frosting and filling.
And gloriously dark ganache on top.
(Which I spread because it didn't drip over the sides very attractively)
Everyone could only eat a tiny sliver, but I seem to have an immunity to richness in cakes. I savor and savor but can still eat a whole piece. But, a rich cake can be stretched farther than anything, and it keeps very well if you can't finish it. As you can see, I didn't even get around to taking a picture til we'd been eating this for a week.
It takes a lot of ingredients, but they are fairly normal so you have no excuse for not trying it with a recipe as simple as this one.
Delicious. Make this cake.
