National Chocolate Cake Day

Today is National Chocolate Cake day.

I am making my chocolate cake with peanut butter filling that I shared with you a few months ago. This is the best chocolate cake I have ever had. I can hardly wait to sink my teeth into this.

I have provided the recipe below and hope you make this amazing chocolate cake to celebrate today.

Peanut Butter Frosting

Serves 12

Light and fluffy peanut butter flavored buttercream frosting.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 to 3 tbsp. milk

Instructions

  1. Beat butter and vanilla until fluffy.
  2. Add peanut butter and mix well.
  3. Add powdered sugar and milk and mix until desired consistency is reached.

 

Chocolate Ganache

12 oz. of chocolate chips

1 cup of heavy cream or coconut milk

Steps for Ganache

Using a double boiler heat the milk or cream until it comes to a slight boil. Turn off the heat and then add in the chocolate. Keep stirring the chocolate until the chocolate is fully melted. Let the Ganache cool enough to pour over the cake.

 

Steps to assemble the cake

Once the cakes are cooled layer the top side of the bottom cake with the peanut butter frosting. Then place the second cake on top and pour the ganache over the top of the cake. Then smooth the ganache out evenly over the entire cake.
