Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cake

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

It’s official – chocolate and peanut butter are a thing. The baking world has taken the famed Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup and transformed the happy couple into a flavor combination as beloved as chocolate and coffee or chocolate and hazelnut. What better way to celebrate this salty sweet combination than with a big and bold Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cake?!

For those of you who don’t know me, hi! I’m Gemma Stafford, the baker behind Bigger Bolder Baking. As a professional chef and Bold Baker to the core, my passion is taking over-the-top sweets and baked goods and making them both accessible while holding on to all of that wow factor. I’m very proud to be an ambassador for GoodCook, since I love all of their baking essentials including many things you’ll want to make this treat.

This cake is a perfect example of that and actually a favorite in my house. In fact, this Chocolate and Peanut Butter cake was requested by my husband, Kevin to celebrate his birthday this year! This style of cake is my favorite – it’s freeform and rustic, decorated with fresh fruit and the most lovely swirled peanut butter butter cream (thanks to my OodleTip disposable piping bag from GoodCook). Whether you’re making it for a special occasion or for a big birthday, your friends and family will literally swoon for this delicacy.

The cake inside of my Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake is one of my go-to recipes as it’s beyond moist and chocolatey, a nod to good quality cocoa powder and the addition of strong coffee. That being said, the best part of this cake is what happens when it’s introduced to my Crazy Peanut Butter Frosting.

This frosting is salty, sweet, light as air and crazy rich. Just like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, this cake packs a chocolate punch while being sweet and salty in all the right ways. To take it up that extra notch, I top this cake with fresh raspberries. Can you imagine anything more festive?!

      Hi there,
      Happy birthday to you Oge!
      I am happy that you are with us in Ireland.
      Are you still talking about the price of making a cake? I am not sure now.
      I live in California now, and we have lots of Bold Bakers from all around the world. I do know that it should not cost you too much to make the Best Ever Chocolate cake (https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/best-ever-chocolate-cake/). This is a good recipe, and will be impressive for your sale, or your birthday!
      Gemma 🙂

      • oge on March 16, 2018 at 8:16 am

        I agree how much does it cost for 30 people to eat i still hope its not too much

        • Gemma Stafford on March 16, 2018 at 11:55 am

          Hi there,
          you need to cost your ingredients. 30 people for one cake??
          Gemma 🙂

          • oge on March 17, 2018 at 4:51 am

            Can any of your
            People who you work with make please can you please tel me the price
            Oge😀



          • Gemma Stafford on March 17, 2018 at 1:16 pm

            Oge are you asking what price to sell things at your bake sale? I’m a little confused…

            Gemma.



  6. oge on March 12, 2018 at 12:38 pm

    hi my name is oge i was wondering if you can make a chocolate cake but first can you please tell me the price because we are doing a bake sale for our school i hope its not really expensive

    • Gemma Stafford on March 13, 2018 at 9:32 am

      Hi Oge,
      I do not know how expensive it will be where you live, but it is a great question!
      You can change the price of the product by changing ingredients sometimes.
      (https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/best-ever-chocolate-cake/) here is a great recipe. You will need to write it down, then go to the store, and write down the price of the ingredients.
      You can make a simple cake too, and add cocoa to give it a chocolate flavor. (https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/crazy-cupcakes/) these crazy cupcakes will give you the idea.
      I am sorry, I really cannot help too much, as I do not know what you can buy, and the price.
      Gemma 🙂

      • oge on March 14, 2018 at 12:05 pm

      • Gemma Stafford on March 18, 2018 at 5:57 pm

        So you are asking me to make your Birthday cake for you??

        Oge, I live in Los Angeles, not in Ireland. I wouldn’t be able to make your cake for you unfortunately.

        Best,
        Gemma.

    hi. please share the peanut butter buttercream because the crazy one was divided win the butter cream. The link shared by good cook is not working

    • Gemma Stafford on March 9, 2018 at 5:36 am

      Hi there,
      (http://www.goodcook.com/chocolate-peanut-butter-cake-gemma-stafford/) try this link, this worked for me, but I will need to get Kevin to check it out.
      Buttercream frosting is a proportional recipe, easy to remember. 1:2, that is one measure of butter to two of powdered sugar, and a little milk/cream. Add vanilla too as appropriate. So, for 6ozs butter it will be 12 oz of icing sugar/powdered sugar. You then add the same measure as the butter in smooth peanut butter.
      This is quite a big mix, but you can see how you can break it down. It could be 1oz butter, 2 sugar, 2 peanut butter, or 2:4:4 etc.
      I need to go back to check the links, and the recipe on GoodCooks post, thank you for letting me know,
      Gemma 🙂
