You can't go wrong with a chocolate & peanut butter. I wanted a cake that taste like a delicious version of a peanut butter cup. This was made using my go-to vanilla cake recipe, but I added 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter to the batter. I used peanut butter cups and a peanut butter mousse for the filling using a recipe I found on pinterest PEANUT BUTTER MOUSSE. I sweetened my mousse with half powdered sugar and half agave. The recipe uses coconut cream, I love coconut, but when I tasted the final product, I thought the coconut flavor was going to be a little overwhelming in my cake. I decided to go for it, and it actually worked perfectly. There wasn't a strong coconut flavor at all! YEAH!
The whole cake was covered in GANACHE, with some melting off the sides. Topped with more mousse and cups.
Peanut butter cake, peanut butter mousse, and peanut butter cups. The ganache is so rich that the triple peanut butter combination works perfectly to balance the flavors!
This cake was absolutely delicious!
