Someone's Turning the Big 7-0!

No, not me, but I am not very far behind!   It's my superman husband!   Sons are both coming in from out of town for the weekend to help us celebrate.   We'll have a low-key bash---lasagna, garlic bread and salad tonight; Royals game tomorrow night; a nice restaurant of his choice Saturday night.   Plenty of fun gifts and this yummy cake:




Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

Cake:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine in bowl of mixer 2 c. sugar, 1 3/4 c. plus 3 T cake flour, 3/4 c. cocoa, 1 1/2 t baking powder, 1 1/2 t baking soda, 1 t salt.  Mix.   In another bowl mix together 2 eggs, 1 c. buttermilk, 1/2 c. melted unsalted butter and 1 T vanilla.   Combine with dry ingredients.  Place 1 c. hot coffee and 4 T peanut butter in a small bowl and allow PB to soften slightly.   Add to other ingreds. and mix well.   Pour batter into 2 greased and floured 9" cake pans.   Bake for about 37 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cakes comes out clean.    Cool on wire racks.

Frosting:  Beat 2/3 c. peanut butter with 1/2 c. room temperature unsalted butter till well-combined and fluffy.  Slowly beat in 4 cups powdered sugar and 3/4 c. cocoa till somewhat stiff.  Add 1 T vanilla and enough milk to make a spreading consistency.  Frost cakes and sprinkle crushed peanuts over top.


Happy Birthday to my husband of 47 years!!!

I'm only a couple of months late in saying Happy Birthday! That's a great milestone to hit. 47 years is a nice long time, but not nearly long enough. =)

Thanks for sharing the video! It looks delicious to me..... can we use fresh milk/ regular milk instead of using buttermilk? :) visit website on steelhead fishing
