For the last wedding I did the groom requested a chocolate peanut butter cake.
Hmmmm . . . how exactly does one do that?!
Make a PB cake and a Chocolate Fudge cake, then torte them.
For filling I used a fudge frosting and Reese's Mini's
It was pretty much heaven!
You know it's good when the bride and groom request a slice of the groom's cake
and not the wedding cake.
Peanut Butter Cake Recipe:
1 box yellow cake mix (don't think less of me!)
1 1/4 cup water
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
8oz sour cream (full fat)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup flour
2 tsp vanilla
1/3 tsp salt
Mix together in mixer and bake in a cake pan as normal
350 degrees for 50 mins
This makes two 8" round cakes.
If you are going to torte it with chocolate cake, you only use one of the layers.
Either freeze the extra or make a torte for a neighbor . . . like me!
The peanut butter cake recipe comes out moist with a nice "creamy" flavor.
Not overwhelmingly PB
I feel stupid for not taking a pic of the cake slice to show you,
especially since it was the slice I sat in front of and devoured personally.
Here's a great example of a "torte style cake"
Happy caking and torting (sp?)
