So, chocolate cake, always a yes. But peanut butter frosting… meh. I’ve been vocal about my dislike of peanuts and peanut butter. Still, with plenty of sugar, the frosting tastes kind of like the middle of a peanut butter cup, which is a good thing. Peanut butter cups have been doctored enough not to be too peanut-y.
This is a pretty simple cake to whip up, no mixer needed (same with the frosting). It’s a true sheet cake – not baked in a 9×13, but in a half-sheet pan, so it’s on the thin side.
I brought it in to work, where it got eaten, but not as quickly as other things I bring in. Unlike most cakes, this one is better when chilled.
