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!!
Cool for 10 minutes and invert the cake slowly on to a plate.
Now for the chocolate and peanut butter swirl icing
Make Chocolate Ganache by pouring 100 gms hot cream over 250 gms chopped dark chocolate. Let it rest for 5 minutes before mixing to a smooth mix.
Pour the ganache over the cooled chocolate cake.
Now for the peanut butter swirl
Combine 2 tbsp of peanut butter with ¾ tbsp. of unsalted butter and 1 tbsp of caster sugar. Mix to a smooth mix.
Drop spoonfuls over the iced cake and create swirls with a toothpick. Voila!!
