  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • CHOCOLATE GLAZE: 1/2 cup water

  • Bring to a boil. Add cocoa, sugar and vanilla to water mixture. Mix until smooth.
  • CHEF’S NOTE: This recipe will make either two 9-inch cakes or one stacked layer cake.
  • If making the stacked layer cake, the Peanut Butter Filling should be put between the layers and on top of the cake before topping it with the Chocolate Glaze.
  • (There was no information on how many servings this recipe will make.)
