Peanut Butter Cake

Smitten Kitchen did it again. I can't help myself when Deb's email comes into my inbox. Ugh. A ton of calories and I'm going to have to give away at least 3/4 of this cake that weighs about 10 pounds. Oh, and that's what's going to happen to my weight too. Another 10 pounds. So? Perhaps I won't eat a dinner tonight. Perhaps I'll just eat cake!

This is a triple layer 9 inch chocolate cake with a cream cheese/peanut butter frosting and a peanut butter ganache poured over the top. Ugh. And don't even think of wrinkling your nose to cream cheese and peanut butter together. I have learned to trust Deb and I cannot believe what heaven this frosting is. The only thing I did different from Deb is make 1 1/2 recipes of the cake batter as I had 9" pans and the recipe called for 8" pans. It probably would have been just fine the way it was, but ...

And although mine isn't as pretty as hers, I'll bet it tastes just as good. Nothing like chocolate and peanut butter together. Why, that's how I found Deb's Smitten Kitchen Blog in the first place. Looking for a recipe for peanut butter brownies.

Happy Birthday Missi!
