I want to make some peanut butter cake balls but I need some help.
What kind of cake do I use, white, vanilla or chocolate? And do I actully use peanut butter as the binder?

Any help would be great.

I actually just made some using peanut butter Oreo cookies with cream cheese as the binder. Just an idea.

I make mine using a peanut butter cake. I think I got the recipe off of here. I usually blend the P.B. crumbs about half and half with chocolate crumbs, and then I use Torriani (sp?) peanut butter flavored syrup (I buy it at the coffee shop) as the binder.

12 oz. white granulated sugar
4 oz. dark brown sugar
4 eggs
8 oz. whole milk
12 oz. cake flour

Cream together butter, peanut butter, white and brown sugar for 5 minutes.

Combine dry ingredients.

Whisk eggs into milk.

Alternating adding dry and wet ingredients in 3 batches to the creamed butter/sugar mixture.

Mix until smooth.

Pour into prepared pan and bake at 350, around 45-50 minutes.

Sour cream chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting.

The cake is very moist. Might not need as much binder.

I use peanut butter as a binder quite a bit. I've used it with vanilla, chocolate and banana cake and even dipped in peanut butter candy melts.

Smittenkitchen adapted this from Mile High of the best cake recipe book around. The cake is very very rich and just takes a smidge of pb frosting. I've made cake balls with it and dipped them into melted pb chips for the coating and rolled them in finely chopped salted peanuts. They are very popular

Sky High Cakes. Best chocolate cake ever. And my favorite book for delicious combinations. Did you ever make the peach cream cake, southerncross? You were supposed to send me the Weight Watchers bill.
