About

I love recipes that are perfect the first time you try them; this peanut butter cake is one of those recipes. It is delicious warm or cold, it is more moist on day two AND it has an intense peanut butter taste and a peanut butter-honey frosting topped with mini-chocolate chips. It is sure to please kids and adults alike.

As you can see from my photo, I double the frosting (but I stick to the one cup of mini-chocolate chips).
