“Wonderfully delicious peanut butter cake best with chocolate frosting, If you make with Reese's Peanut Butter and a milk chocolate frosting, it's very much like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. This recipe makes a smaller 8x8 cake. If you make a triple batch it is enough for one layer in a 12" cake pan with a dozen cupcakes. I also recommend that you use a creamy peanut butter simply because if there is some left over the nuts well get "soggy" in the cake.”
