Looking for an easy recipe for Chocolate and Peanut Butter cake. I hope to use the Chocolate WASC (box) and just add 1 cup of Peanut Butter. Will that do it? Will I get enough peanut butter flavor? Will it mess up the cake consistency? I plan on using ganache for filling/icing so I don't really want to add the peanut butter to that.
Any insight would be really appreciated!
Heres a recipe I've used several times. It's pretty good...kids love it
3 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. cocoa powder (sometimes I use up to 1/2 c. just depends on my attitude that day!!)
1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 c. milk
1 1/3 c. unsalted roasted peanuts, finely chopped (optional)
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; mix well. Add butter, peanut butter, and milk; beat 2 minutes on medium speed of electric mixer. Add eggs; beat 2 minutes on medium speed. Fold in 1 1/3 cups chopped peanuts.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes
As far as just adding PB to the WASC....I wouldn't see why you couldn't
Yes, you can just add pb to the WASC reciep using chocolate cake mix. YUUUMMMM
awesome, thanks for the recipe too!
