I’m so excited to let one of my new blog friends, Roxana, take over Shugary Sweets for the day! Not only does she make incredible desserts, but she has great bread making tips as well! Roxana is sharing a delicious Peanut Butter Cake that will knock your socks off! Look at those Reese’s Peanut Butter Hearts on top…they are also INSIDE! I wish I could say she not only is sharing on the blog, but also in real life. I’d LOVE a slice of this cake. Hmmm….does it ship well Roxana?
Hello Shugary Sweets fans! For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Roxana, the baker, photographer and writer behind Roxana’s Home Baking. And as much as I hate it, I’m doing the dishes as well. My family, friends and neighbors are my trusty taste-testers. I love baking from scratch and my sweet tooth is the boss in my kitchen. I’m a chocolate girl at heart and you can always win me over with a loaf of freshly baked bread.
I’m happy to be here, on Aimee’s beautiful blog sharing one of my husband’s favorite cakes : Peanut Butter Cake. The idea of this cake came from a magazine I read while waiting for my dentist appointment. I quickly snapped a photo with my phone and couldn’t wait to get home and try it. To our disappointment the cake turned out so dry I deleted the picture and decided to make a peanut butter cake by my own heart. I wanted a light, moist cake with the right amount of peanut butter flavor.
As you probably know, peanut butter tends to put a weight on baked goods and there’s a thin line between a light moist and a heavy dense dry cake.
But no worries, this cake is everything you want in a peanut butter cake. It’s light, moist with a small crumb and here and there you get bits of chopped peanut butter cups/or hearts as I used this time.
The peanut butter frosting is literally the icing on the cake. It’s creamy, silky and addictive! I highly recommend using heavy cream instead of milk for the best frosting ever!
Thank you Aimee for allowing me to share this peanut butter cake recipe with your readers. I hope you’ll bake it soon (Valentine’s Day is just around the corner) and you’ll enjoy it as much as we did.
