I don’t really need an excuse to bake but… it was an important person’s birthday the other week and I needed to pull out all the stops.
I was looking for a cake that would stand out among the rest. Something with a complimentary cake to filling ratio. Something… chocolate and peanut butter! ‘Cuz seriously – you can’t go wrong with that combination, right?
The recipe for this cake was found via pinterest on Pass the Sushi’s blog. It’s a Rachel Ray cake combo and was first printed in her magazine.
It came together so nicely. This recipe is a keeper either in whole or deconstructed into parts to use in future creations!
I LOVE the sour cream based cake. It was not too sweet but perfectly dense for this three-layer contraption!
The peanut butter filling was TO. DIE. FOR. I could eat it off a spoon (Or did I?). The cream cheese in this filling adds a nice little tang to the icing.
And the chocolate frosting. Again, with a little cream cheese, it cuts through the usual sickly sweetness of many frostings.
Soo… soo… good. Is it too early for cake, today?!
