I was thinking about this the other day. I have made Peanut Butter and Jelly cupcakes and everyone loved them. But I was thinking that the Darn Good Chocolate Cake would be REALLY good if you replaced the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips and then used PB Buttercream.

I used to make these all the time for my MIL. I didn't really have a recipe though, so I don't remember how I made it. I baked a basic white 2 layer cake recipe. I sliced the layers to make 4. The first layer was spread with a PB cream (made with PB, 10X sugar and milk) and chocolate ganache. This was repeated until the top was placed. It was also spread with PB cream and then the whole cake was "coated" in the chocolate ganache.

Reese's has a good pb cupcake recipe. I'll see if I can find it and I'll let you know. I have tried it and it's good! It has a pb frosting also. It would be good with choc frosting or ganache.

gosh guys you are all terrific...when it is the office cake and you are known for making good ones, don't want to disappoint. I do candy and have the reese's filling recipe but would need to make it a bit creamier.

Oh, I wasn't sure if you meant a filling recipe or cake recipe. I was talking about a cake recipe. If you want it I'll send it to you!

Ok, here's my pb buttercream recipe. I'll check for my pb cake recipe:
Peanut Butter Buttercream Icing
If you like peanut butter cups, youll love chocolate cupcakes spread with Peanut Butter Buttercream Icing!
Source: Cupcake Fun
Electric mixer

1/3 cup solid vegetable shortening
1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups (approx. 1 lb.) confectioners' sugar, sifted
Makes: About 3 cups.

Cream shortening and butter with electric mixer. Add peanut butter, milk and vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
Keep icing covered with a damp cloth until ready to use. For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored 2 weeks. Re-whip before using.

I did make peanut butter cupcakes, and filled them, then frosted them with chocolate frosting. They were a huge hit, everyone saying it was like eating a reese's. I've also done chocolate cake with peanut butter filling and frosting.
Anyway, here is my peanut butter cake recipe:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
5 eggs
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Grease and flour cake pans, set aside
3. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt
4. In extra-large bowl, beat butter with electric mixer on medium to high spped for 30 seconds.
5. Add sugar; beat until well mixed.
6. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each
7. Beat in peanut butter and vanilla.
8. Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk, beating on low speed after each addition, until well combined
9. Spread batter into prepared pans
10. Bake 25-30 miutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
11. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes
12. Remove from pans, cool completely on wire racks
13. Frost with preferred frsoting.

I think this is the recipe that we used for the frosting.

1/2 cup butter (not margarine)
1 1/2 cups JIF creamy peanut butter
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
milk, to obtain desired consistency

In a large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla flavoring and mix thoroughly. Slowly beat in the confectioner's sugar, adding a little milk along the way until the frosting reaches a good spreading consistency.

Oh boy does that sound delicious! Rich but with just the right amount of lightness to it.
