Peanut Butter Cake
This is a Peanut Butter Cake is great for your family or any parties that are coming up for the holidays! It is so light and moist that it almost melts in your mouth!!
There is something so inviting when peanut butter is involved! We have been lovers of our peanut butter cookies for years and I wanted to expand our horizon. Making a dessert in the middle of the week is a rare occasion but I decided to surprise my husband!
I have told you guys several times that my hubby is really honest when I make something new for the blog and sometimes things just don’t make the cut. This one did! He couldn’t stop eating it because it was so good!
