Blue Ribbon Recipe

If you love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate this cake is a dream. It's an old-fashioned chocolate cake that's fluffy and delicate. Then, there's a layer of peanut butter. On top is a cooked chocolate frosting that's rich and fudge-like. When all three layers are combined in a bite, it is heavenly. This easy chocolate cake will disappear in no time. To make it pretty, add extra dabs of peanut butter on top. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
