Chocolate cake with peanut butter swirls

I am an absolute peanut butter addicted and I believe that it is the perfect match for many recipes. In this yummy chocolate cake, peanut butter enhances the flavors and in combination with the chocolate-peanut butter frosting is the ultimate dessert for peanut butter lovers.


For the cake

  • 2 teacups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teacups sugar
  • 1/2 teacup cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ teacup seed oil
  • 1 teacup fresh milk
  • 1 teacup hot water
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter

For the frosting

  • 1/2 teacup butter in room temperature
  • 1/2 teacup peanut butter
  • 2 teacups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4-5 tablespoons heavy cream


In the mixer bowl whisk together all cake ingredients except for the peanut butter until you have a fluid mix.

Grease a 13X9 baking pan and pour the cake mix. Add the peanut butter and with a knife, make swirls.

Bake in a preheated, at 180 degrees, oven for 35-40 minutes.

Let the cake to cool well and, in the meantime, prepare the frosting.

Mix the frosting ingredients in the mixer bowl until they are well homogenized well and have a creamy texture (if necessary add some more heavy cream).

Frost the cake evenly with the buttercream and, if desired, decorate with sprinkles.

Cut into pieces and serve.
