Completing our Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cake
This cake has been on my mind since January. You see, my husband is a HUGE peanut butter and chocolate fan! He Love, love, loves it! So, this was ultimately his very belated birthday cake. And what a cake it was!
Decadent Chocolate Cake with a two cup disk of peanut butter cookie dough sandwiched in the middle. Then I made a peanut butter frosting and added mini chocolate chips to the outside. It turned out wonderful!
I was taking photos of the cake around noon and offered my husband a slice. He usually passes on my dessert or just takes a small bite, but for this cake, he got a fork and a glass of Ice Wine and just devoured it! He commented that he had a Mouth-gasim! Or was it mouthgasmic? Either way, I’m pretty sure he enjoyed it!
This cake turned out even better than I ever expected. We didn’t sing Happy Birthday and there were no candles for Mr. Quart, but he loved his cake. You have got to try this combination!
I was torn between a chocolate frosting and a peanut butter one, but I sure am convinced that made the right choice!
I was so proud of myself when I sliced into this cake to see this perfect center of cookie dough. I had never done this before, but I think from now on, this is the only way I’m going to “frost” the center of a cake.
To slice the perfect piece of cake, place the entire cake in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour. Then immediately slice. I don’t think I’ve ever cut a cake and had it turn out this perfect before. Cheers for Karyn!!
Now, make this cake and serve it up with a sweet dessert wine or a big glass of milk!
