Peanut Butter Chip Cake

Kim Biegacki Recipe

By Kim Biegacki pistachyoo

Wow, this is one amazing cake and believe it or not has sauerkraut in it. Yes, you heard me right, sauerkraut; a whole cup to be exact. I enjoyed making this cake today because I was determined to trick my husband into eating some "kraut" (which he hates, by the way) the scent alone of peanut butter baking had him drooling. The aroma just lingered all through the house. Well, when I brought him a piece and he tasted it...he said "Wow, this is amazing!" ....hehe...took me 4X to tell him the secret ingredient before he believed me! Kept saying, "you did not!" ROFL
Got him and got him good!!!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, add all your ingredients except the chocolate chips. Beat with an electric mixer till well blended. (This batter is thick) Once mixed fold in the 1/2 of mini chocolate chips.

Next spread your mixture into a well greased and floured 10 X 15 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
2
Let cake cool for 1/2 hour or longer before frosting.
Prepare your frosting and spread over the top of cake. It will make just enough frosting.
3
Add your chocolate chips and peanuts to the top.
4
Slice into squares and serve.

Oh, ran out of room in the story telling part but this is not my recipe. I found it on the internet and printed it out. I thought I saved the link but didn't. When I search and find it again, I will post the site where I got it. Whoever, came up with this recipe did an outstanding job!!!

Oh, and this is more of a dense cake and holds it own. It serves up like a brownie and chewy like it has coconut in it. The peanut butter flavor is incredible and the little mini chips are a must. They really bring something to it. I didn't have the peanuts to put on top but I am sure they will add yet more depth to this wonderful cake. I really hope you try it. :-)
