Peanut Butter Chocolate Reese's Birthday Cake

Spread, drizzle or pour, I like it just the way it is.. or it is simply my way of expressing myself.. or better the truth to be told..my sausage fingers find it so hard to design my cakes. ha ha ha!

Recently, there are two major celebration in the family that I know every mother like me can relate. First, its official I have a young professional in the house. My son has just started with his first job as a professional. Time flies so fast, my little boy is now a young man. Second, I have a daughter who turned 17, I cant believe again, my baby girl is now a blooming 17 year old teeny. I feel so old but happy. 

My daughter celebrated her birthday last week Sept 23. I asked her what sort of a cake she would like for her birthday. I was hoping she wont pick this cake but good gracious, Peanut Butter Chocolate Reese's Cake won her heart again! So there you are, its official again, this is our family's birthday cake. I am not into it but my husband and my two children like this cake so much. 

Actually this cake is quite easy. First you have to make your favorite chocolate cake ever, then mix up your frosting and once all set, top with chocolate ganache. I have a recipe for Moist Chocolate Cake which I learned several years ago and I know the taste by the heart.

Moist Choco Cake
1 cup dark cocoa
2 cups boiling water
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter
2 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Direction:
In a bowl, mix cocoa and boiling water.Set aside and cool completely. 
Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside
In a mixer using paddle, beat butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy.
At a low speed, beat in flour mixture and liquid cocoa mixture alternately, ending with flour mixture
Pour equally into three 9 inch round pans. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
Let the cakes cool completely

Peanut Butter Frosting:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
4 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp milk
Using your mixer, mix peanut butter and butter on a low speed until creamy.
Add the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk then  mix on high speed until smooth.
Add milk if necessary.
Set aside in the fridge.

Choco Ganache:
1 cup semi sweet dark chocolate
1/2 cup whipping cream
In a bowl, microwave the cream for 45 second.
Add in the chocolates and gently mix using a spoon or spatula. Set aside 

Reeses
Chopped and sprinkle after putting icing on the first layer and yeah...
Just decorate the way you want it. Feel free and happy.

Now you can assemble your cake and surely you know the process of assembling, frosting and pouring of the the ganache. I am not that good with cake design. I am good at just drizzle and pour.
If you are like me, well its just fine.. as long as it looks good. sweet and yummy.. way to go!

  9. Okay - I need a piece of your cake right now! This is the perfect dessert for me (I'm printing out the recipe so maybe someone can make it for me - my birthday was Sept. 22nd). Reese peanut butter cups are my favorite candy bar and then your moist chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting and a chocolate ganache - absolutely delicious. Thanks for sharing with Fiesta Friday!
