Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter FrostingMarch 17 2008 at 7:02 AM
Response to DESSERTS--Cakes, frostings, cookies, pies, candy, puddings, etc.
I haven't made it in a few years. A cake at my house would last forever with just me.
Unfortunately, this makes an 8 X 8 cake. I don't know if you could double the recipe to make a layer cake or not. Maybe make two 8 X 8 cakes and layer them -- a square cake.
The frosting is fabulous too. It is a fluffy peanut butter frosting. It makes way more than you need for an 8 X 8 cake though.
1 c. sugar
1-1/2 c flour
3 Tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
Make 3 holes -- in one hole pour 1/3 c oil
1 hole 1 Tbsp vinegar
1 hole 1 tsp vanilla
Pour 1 c of cold water over all and blend. Pour into an 8 X 8 pan. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Peanut Butter Frosting
1/4 c flour
1 c milk
1 c sugar
1/2 c peanut butter
1/2 c shortening
1/4 tsp vanilla
heaping Tbsp cocoa
Mix four & milk. Cook till thickened. Cool. Cream remaining. Add cooked mixture. Beat till frothy and light (a few minutes -- maybe 5).
