This recipe serves 8 and is made in an 8 x 8 pan. Delicious chocolate cake topped with peanut butter straight from the jar and topped with an easy frosting you make you make in the microwave!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare ganache frosting.
In another microwave safe bowl heat cream until it just begins to simmer around the edges. About 2 minutes.
Using a wire whisk, mix well. Chocolate will melt and will become a creamy consistency. Be patient, it takes a bit of stirring.
Add vanilla. Cool in fridge for while cake is baking to thicken the ganache.
Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix until combined.
Completely cool cake. Spread peanut butter on top with a spatula.
Chill cake in refrigerator until peanut butter is firm to the touch, about 15 minutes.
Top with cooled chocolate ganache. If your ganache is to firm, microwave for 10 seconds at a time stirring until spreadable but not heated through.
Chill 30-60 minutes, slice and serve!
