This cake makes men drool and women fight over the last piece! I think it's the peanut butter in the icing!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a saucepan, combine 1/2 cup margarine, oil, 4 tablespoons cocoa and water. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring often. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour and sugar. Make a well in the center, and pour in the cocoa mixture. Stir until smooth. Mix in the buttermilk, 2 teaspoons vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda and eggs.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly before frosting.
  5. For the Frosting: In a large saucepan, combine 1/2 cup margarine, 4 tablespoons cocoa and 5 tablespoons milk. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Remove from heat. Stir in confectioners' sugar, peanut butter and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla. Beat until the icing is blended. Pour over warm cake.

I would definitely fight over the last piece of this cake! The peanut butter frosting is out of this world; especially if you're a peanut butter freak like I am. I baked it in a removable tube pan and I guess because of it, I needed to add about another 20 mins. baking time. I also decreased the amount of confectioners sugar in the frosting from four cups to less than three. It was plenty sweet and absolutely fabulous!

nice cake- not just the regular boring chocolate cake here. I halved the recipie to make a smaller layered cake with the frosting in between layers. but the frosting recipie did not turn out well for me at all. it was not smooth at all, so i had to add a little more milk and some melted chocolate chips to make a usable consistency. other than that, it was a very nice little cake!

I just made this cake for a dinner party and it is delicious! The next time I make this cake, I will only make half of the frosting as this recipe makes a TON of frosting that is far to rich to use all of!
