Stacey's Peanut Butter Cake

I first tested this recipe when I was making a birthday for a coworker’s son. I was pleasantly surprised by the intensity of the peanut butter flavour and I couldn’t stop eating it. Hope you enjoy!!

I found this cake to be very dry and not very peanut buttery. I must say that I did like the dense texture though.
