This Peanut Butter Cake with Chocolate Frosting is a moist cake full of peanut butter flavor and topped with a rich and creamy chocolate frosting!
I know, I know it’s just barely into January and I am already posting non-resolution type foods. (Unless your resolution was to eat more cake and in that case we can sooo be friends 🙂 )
Like I said I’m not a resolution type of person and I am going to be a rebel and tempt all of you with this super decadent cake!!! Hehehe!!
Ok, maybe a lot of this has to do with being pregnant and food resolutions are the last thing on my mind.

- 1/4 cup butter softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoons baking soda

- 5-6 tablespoons milk

In the bowl of your stand mixer (or use a hand mixer) cream the peanut butter, butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition. Add in the buttermilk and vanilla, mix well. Slowly add in the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
