Peanut-Butter-Cup Cake w/ Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting - Cake Recipe Contest

Editor Note: This is yet another one from Beth whom we called "Shrugged" at Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen.

The Great Cake Recipe Contest - Submission # 7

This is a VERY rich cake, but guaranteed to please. Created strictly for the Great Cake Recipe Contest, I'm sure this will be a staple in my house from now on.

This works best if you have an extra set of hands, so one of you can prepare the chocolate batter while the other person prepares the peanutbutter batter, but if you're alone, make the peanut butter batter first and then the chocolate batter, for best results. My daughter and I made this together, and even though we were cooking on top of one another, it worked out well. As it's baking, the chocolate cake will rise up along the sides of the peanut butter cake, but by the time it's finished, they'll come together nicely. Enjoy!
