Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Cake

I have addressed my issues with keeping sweets in our house many times on this blog before, so I won't bore you with another rant on how wildly obsessed I am with eating an entire pan of cookies in one sitting and then follow it with a nice healthy appetizer to try.  Instead, I will actually share a wonderful cake recipe that I found on another blog and let you be the judge and jury on whether or not you can resist devouring the whole thing in one sitting.  I do however, refuse to be responsible for your guilt and/or stomach ache afterwards. 

As I mentioned in my previous post, I jumped at the opportunity to host Todd's family celebration of May Birthday's this year and what better way to celebrate a birthday then with cake? Finally, a good reason to fall off my "healthy" wagon.

I know what you're thinking when you read this title. You're thinking, "Holy Hannah, that sounds heavy and rich!"  Yet it is not. This cake has a wonderful airy texture and the filling is delightfully thin, fluffy, and not to over bearing on the peanut butter flavor.It's truthfully awesome.

One of my favorite comments when I made this cake was, "SERIOUSLY KRISTEN... THIS CAKE IS TO DIE FOR!" I have never dubbed myself as a "baker" per say, (Most of the time I would prefer to be making "to die for" entrees or pretty yet delightful appetizers,) but I do try.  I always dabbled a little bit but when it came to cakes and pies I was never shy to the boxed mix aisle at the grocery. Thankfully, I have been reading a lot of blog recipes lately and Annie's Eats has AMAZING items that I always want to try. Her blog gave me the courage to skip the box and go home-made!
