You might remember my plans to make Dan a chocolate peanut butter cake for his birthday back in March. Well, I made it! There isn't much explanation necessary. I followed the recipe from Smitten Kitchen pretty exactly-- I nixed the corn syrup, which made the chocolate a little bit less oozy, and I used only 1 cup of sugar in the cake batter, which was plenty sweet! That said, definitely keep this recipe in your repertoire. Having worked in a bakery for several years, I can say that probably 7/10 guys choose a chocolate-peanut butter combo for their cakes over other flavors, so this recipe is great if you're baking for a dad, brother or boyfriend! Also, do make note that the cakes are SUPER fudgey. Definitely worth freezing them for a bit before assembling.
And without further ado, I present a bunch of pictures of this super decadent cake!
