Description

This will be one of the best cakes you’ve ever eaten!

Consider adding chocolate to the frosting!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • ½ cups Creamy Peanut Butter
  • ½ cups Butter
  • 4 whole Eggs
  • 1 package Yellow Cake Mix (18 Ounce Box, Butter Flavor)
  • ⅔ cups Water
  • _____
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • ½ cups Softened Butter
  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar
  • ½ cups Heavy Cream Or Milk

Preparation

For Cake:

Combine peanut butter and softened butter until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time. Add cake mix alternately with water. Stir just until combined. Pour into two 8″ round cake pans and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

For the frosting:

Combine peanut butter and softened butter until fluffy. Add 4 cups of powdered sugar. Then mix 1/2 cup heavy cream (or milk) to spreading consistency.

Slice cake layers in 1/2 so you have four layers. Frost between all layers and then frost the rest of cake.

I think adding chocolate to this frosting would be fabulous!

I was looking for a simple recipe tonight for something rich and easy this was perfect! I loved the fact that I had all the ingredients for it. I noticed a lot of the cake recipes were calling for cream cheese or cool whip, sorry but I don’t keep those items on hand…but Peanut Butter is always available. The cake turned out delicious and I drizzled chocolate all over it…Thank you for sharing!

Just made this with a banana-flavored cake mix and added cocoa to the frosting. Haven’t assembled it yet, but the cakes seem pretty fluffy and delicate (probably just the way the banana mix comes out), so I may not cut them into four layers. Two should be alright. I added about 1/4 cup cocoa and a few tablespoons of coffee to the frosting.
Thanks for this easy recipe!
