Phe/Mom/enon. Thank you Holly! I love peanut butter and chocolate and this one did not disappoint.
The cake was very easy to put together and smelled delicious while baking. I was a bit taken back by the 6 sticks of butter in the frosting recipe, but stuck to the recipe as stated. I think in the future I will cut back on the butter a bit. The peanut butter taste came through, even though there is only a 1/2 cup of peanut butter in the frosting, but I found the frosting too rich, too buttery. Even my hubby, who seldom finds anything "too much" said the frosting was extremely rich.
The cake is fudge-like, almost like a brownie. The chocolate flavor is deep and intense. It was moist and delicious! I will use this devil's food cake recipe the next time I need a chocolate cake to impress.
So, thanks again Holly! I loved it, and would definitely make it again.Head over to Sweet Melissa Sunday's if you would like to see what the other SMS bakers thought
