I made him sour cream chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting and chocolate peanut butter glaze for his birthday.
I first read about this cake over at Smitten Kitchen where Deb baked it for her chocolate mad husband's birthday with rave reviews. The recipe comes from Sky High: Irresistible Triple Layer Cakes by Alisa Huntsman and Peter Wynne, and after a few google searches relating to this book I knew I had to buy it.
My God, is this cake rich. It took five of us to eat just a quarter of it, so it would easily serve twenty people despite the recipe's instructions that it could do 12 or 16. Having said that, Rahul loved it and took about a quarter of the remains to work today.
If you love Reese's peanut butter cups this is the cake of your dreams.
I can't decide what to bake next. Peach Melba Cake with Raspberry Cream? Key West Cake with Mango Mousse and Ginger Lime Cream? Pina Colada Cake?
