One of the best Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake recipes around.

There’s something deliciously childish about including peanut butter in a cake recipe. Deliciously childish yet a delightfully grown-up way to get a peanut butter fix.

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake recipe is an absolute star of a cake recipe.

As well as being utterly delicious, this cake is super-duper, amazingly rich.

Give everyone a thin slice to begin with – they can always go back for more if they can possibly fit it in.

A must for peanut butter fans.
