Gooey Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Holy yum. Before I even start I just want to say that this cake is life changing.

So I went to Ikea a few weeks ago with my mom and stumbled across this adorable cake stand that neither of us could resist especially for that price. I've never had a pretty cake stand before so I of course wanted to bake a cake to put in that cake stand!

It literally took me ages to decide what kind of cake to make because a.) I'm indecisive b.) Everything  looked delish. The main struggle was I kind of wanted to make something fruity and pretty and summery, but then chocolate... After settling on chocolate cake then there was the debate should I make peanut butter frosting? cookie dough? Nutella? But I decided to go with the classic combo of chocolate and peanut butter, literally cannot go wrong.
I eventually settled on chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting and it did not disappoint. I used this recipe here and let me tell you this cake is so good. I must admit I was a bit skeptical because it doesn't use any butter and the batter was super thin and the cakes looked a little funny coming out of the oven.

Now before I continue my mom and I worship boxed cakes. They are so simple and churn out the most perfect cakes, that are light, fluffy, and moist and this cake has the lightness and moistness of a boxed cake.
The only alteration I made to the recipe was I ended up adding more peanut butter to the frosting because the original recipe wasn't quite peanut buttery enough for me, but other than that it's delicious.

I'm also quite proud of my frosting job. I'm quite obsessed with naked cakes at the mo' and I love the way this turned out. I think I've said this before but I love rustic looking baked goods, they're just so cute!

Anyways, if you're not convinced yet you need to go bake yourself this cake and enjoy every bite because you will not regret it!
Thanks for reading!!
