This peanut butter cake with peanut butter frosting is the perfect cake to make when you just want something different. Normally I make chocolate cake when we start craving cakes around here but I thought I'd change it up by whipping up this peanut butter cake. Paired with a tall glass of milk this cake is so comforting. Moist, super soft and packed with the perfect amount of peanut butter flavor. I'll def. be making it again soon, it was such a welcomed change of pace.
