Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cake

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cake

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan. Grease a 30x10 cm cake pan and dust with flour.
  • Prepare 3 mixtures: In one bowl, beat the yogurt, eggs, vanilla and honey. In second bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • When making cakes, it is always better to sift the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. They are more easily combined and your cake will turn out much fluffier.
  • Reserve 2-3 tablespoons of the flour mixture to coat the chocolate with. This will keep the chocolate from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
  • For the third mixture, add the butter, sugar and peanut butter in a mixers bowl. Beat on high speed for about 5 minutes, until the mixture becomes light and fluffy and turns beige in color. The butter must be softened before using.
  • Lower the mixers speed and add 1/3 of the yogurt mixture. Beat and when combined, add the ½ of the flour mixture and continue beating. Add another 1/3 of the yogurt mixture. Beat and then add the rest of the flour mixture. When combined, add the final 1/3 of the yogurt mixture.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula and stir mixture to make sure it is all completely combined. Turn up the speed to medium and beat for 1 minute. Add the chocolate and stir to distribute.
  • Transfer mixture to cake pan and bake for 45-55 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and set aside to cool for 10 minutes before you turn it out of the cake pan.

For the icings

  • Whisk together all of the ingredients for each coating in 2 separate bowls.
  • Decorate the cake with the vanilla icing and pour the peanut butter icing over the cake with a spoon.
  • Cut into pieces and serve.
