Whenever I am hungry and need a quick bite, I make myself a nutella and peanut butter sandwich. And the world is good  🙂  Chocolate and peanut butter is an awesome combination.

Utilizing this combo, I made a swirl icing for this chocolate cake. A Swirl icing is the easiest way to present a cake. The decorated cake looks as if a lot of effort has been put in it 😉

The  cake recipe used for this chocolate and peanut butter swirl cake has condensed milk in it and is eggless too 🙂 This is also a single bowl recipe and results in a moist and dense chocolate cake. I am all for easy and quick recipes!!
