How to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake:
  • For Cake
  • Set the oven at 350 degrees and lightly grease two 9-inch-round cake pans. Set them aside.
  • With the help of an electric mixer, combine the granulated sugar, cocoa, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • With the mixer set on slow speed, blend in the eggs, vanilla and milk.
  • Blend in the boiling water in a slow, steady stream. The batter can be very thin.
  • Divide the batter between the pans. Bake the cakes for 35 minutes or until the top springs back when pressed lightly.
  • Let cake layers cool in pans for almost 10 minutes. Turn the rounds out onto wire racks to cool them completely.

    Butter Cream
  • In an electric mixer, cream the butter and shortening. Gradually add the confectioners\' sugar. Mix well, until it is all incorporated well.
  • With mixer running, slowly add the vanilla and water, beating until it gets fluffy.
  • Add peanut butter and beat on medium-high speed, until the frosting is fluffy.
  • Refrigerate the butter cream until ready to use.
  • Spread it over the cake and serve.
