Peanut Butter Cake

Peanut Butter Cake

Meet the ultimate Peanut Butter Cake. A Milk Bar-inspired cake with three layers of peanut butter cake, peanut butter cream cheese frosting and homemade chocolate cookie crumbs. A three layer pb cake filled with melt-in-your-mouth cream cheese frosting and plenty of cocoa-laden chocolate cookie crumbs. This Milk Bar-inspired Peanut Butter Cake is as delicious as it is pretty. If you can eat peanut butter with a spoon and adore all things cake AND cookie, this is the perfect dessert for you. The cake itself has a boatload of peanut butter baked right into the batter, so it’s moist, soft and sweet (but not too sweet). But let’s be real – the star of the show is that peanut butter cream cheese frosting.

You’ll want to face plant into the bowl of frosting alone. The cream cheese makes it extra luscious and there’s a heap of peanut butter in the frosting as well. Ya know, because this is a serious Peanut Butter Cake. Milk Bar bake their cakes in a quarter sheet pan and then cut out the three layers. This means your cake bakes very evenly and quickly. You also don’t have to clean three baking tins – win win.
