When someone asks you about which cake you’re craving from Smitten Kitchen, it’s really quite a gift! I chose this chocolate peanut butter cake, and my sister took on the challenge, with a little help from Mom. I mean, what do new mothers do all day but watch the Today show and bake? (Just kidding!)
This cake is every bit as decadent as it looks. The chocolate cake layers (3!) are perfectly moist. The peanut butter frosting has just enough peanut butter without being overpowering. And the chocolate peanut butter glaze? Good enough to eat right out of the bowl, but also makes a great accent to the cake. I could go on and on, but really, you’ll have to make this for yourself. Or convince someone to make it for you!
