Birthday Cake

Chocolate Pudding Reeses Peanut Butter Cake starts with a homemade chocolate cake.

  • 2 oz. chocolate, chopped (I used some bittersweet, some milk chocolate)
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2/3 cup milk (soy if you want to make it vegan)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 2 8-inch round cake pans. Place the chocolate pieces in a bowl. Pour the boiling water over it and whisk until completely melted and uniform. Let this cool for a bit.

Next whisk the flour, sugars, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a bowl until combined.

Pour the batter into your prepared pans and bake for approximately 18 minutes. Let cool on wire racks.

They will be thin cakes. Great for layering :)

The rest of the cake is even simpler. Prepare a package of pudding of your choice. I like chocolate. Spread the pudding onto one of the layers of cake. Top that with about 2/3 cup crushed mini Reeses Peanut Butter cups.

Top with other cake layer. You can use whatever you want to ice the cake. I used whipped cream.

And it was delicious.
