Delicious peanut butter cake with a sweet crumb topping and drizzled with chocolate.
My sister actually came up with this recipe back in 2011, when my blog was just a baby. I shared it way back then, but, sadly, the majority of the people on the planet missed it. The picture was taken by my sister's cell phone and it was let's just say..less than appealing.
No slack given to my sister. My photos were not exactly drool worthy back then either. However, this cake is really delicious and it always bugged me that it never got the attention it deserved.
So, today, we are giving it another show!
We start with your standard yellow cake mix. You will need the standard yellow cake mix ingredients except the oil or butter. Whichever you cake mix calls for. Replace it with peanut butter and bake.
Next, you are topping it with a sweet,crumb topping and then, a chocolate glaze is drizzled on top. It's good stuff, my friends.
Get a glass a milk and grab a piece..you will not be disappointed!
On a completely different note...I will be away from the blog until next Monday. I'm taking some time off for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
