I have never shared this specific recipe until now. It’s a wonderful cake and has been a prizewinning blessing to me. It won a 1st place ribbon and $100 prize in the 2010 Kroger Employee Holiday Baking Contest and a 1st place medal in the adult dessert category at the Texas Rice Festival cooking contest held in Winnie, Texas, last weekend. It’s a blessed cake! Nothing would please me more than to hear from one of you telling me that you tried it and liked it too! Hope you enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We are lost for words... This cake is pure peanut butter heaven. It's a classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Adding coffee really enhances the chocolate flavor. The cake is dense but so moist. The frosting is light and fluffy, almost like a creamy mousse. This showstopper dessert is almost too pretty to eat! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
