How to Make Peanut Butter and Fudge Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a medium saucepan; stir well. Cook over mediu-low heat, stirring constantly, until the butter melts. Gradually stir about 1/4 of the hot mixture into the eggs; add to the remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Transfer the buttermilk mixture to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and sugar; add to the buttermilk mixture, beating at medium speed of an electric mixer until blended. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
  3. Pour the batter into a greased and floured 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.
  4. Combine the peanut butter and oil; stir well. Spread the peanut butter mixture over the top of the cake.
  5. Combine 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk, and 1/4 cup cocoa in a medium saucepan; stir well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the butter melts and the mixture is bubbly. Remove from the heat. Combine warm cocoa mixture and the powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl; beat at medium speed until smooth. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread the cocoa mixture over the peanut butter mixture.
