I made this gorgeous cake for my birthday in September. I know it’s pretty late for the recipe but you know how lazy I am sometimes. This post has been pending for a while. But seriously it’s probably my favorite cake in a very long time. It was so delicious that I felt proud of it :D. You know like you are proud of your kids when they do well, I was proud of this  baby for it’s amazing taste.

This Peanut Butter Cake with Caramel Filling was apt to celebrate my birthday!!

I am really enjoying these nut butters lately. Though peanut butter has been a staple in our house for as long as I remember, but recently I tried almond and cashew butters from a local bakery nearby. They are such a treat for your tongue. Creamy,smooth and delicious. And if you use them in baked goods, they just gloriously  magnify  the taste of the entire dessert. This Peanut Butter Cake with Caramel Filling was such a fulfilling cake. I still remember how it melted in my mouth and the flavors of peanut butter, caramel and chocolate satiated my tastebuds 😉

I did only two layers of the peanut butter cake this time  rather than my usual love for three layers. And a fat layer of the caramel filling. Also covered it in dark chocolate ganache 😀 Already sold, aren’t you 😛

The Peanut butter cake also had chocolate chips in it, but feel free to omit them if you want a strong peanutty taste. I think I enjoyed it like this 🙂 Let me know how you like yours.

Assemble the cake spooning the caramel filling between the two layers of peanut butter cake and cover with dark chocolate ganache.
