For the Cake:

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

For the Peanut Butter Fudge Frosting:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


For the Cake:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 350Β°F (175Β°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  1. Sift Dry Ingredients:
  • In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  1. Mix Wet Ingredients:
  • In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.
  1. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
  • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until well combined. The batter will be thick.
  1. Add Boiling Water:
  • Stir in the boiling water until the batter becomes smooth. The batter will be thin, but that’s okay.
  1. Bake:
  • Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  1. Cool:
  • Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, then remove them from the pans and place them on a wire rack to cool completely.

For the Peanut Butter Fudge Frosting:

  1. Melt Peanut Butter and Butter:
  • In a saucepan over low heat, melt the peanut butter and unsalted butter together, stirring until smooth.
  1. Add Powdered Sugar and Milk:
  • Remove the saucepan from heat and whisk in the powdered sugar and milk until the mixture is creamy and well combined.
  1. Add Vanilla:
  • Stir in the vanilla extract.


  1. Frost the Cake:
  • Once the cakes have cooled, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a layer of the peanut butter fudge frosting on top of this layer. Place the second cake layer on top and frost the top and sides of the entire cake with the remaining frosting.
  1. Decorate (Optional):
  • You can decorate the cake with chocolate chips, chopped peanuts, or drizzled melted chocolate for added flair.
  1. Slice and Serve:
  • Slice the Peanut Butter Fudge Cake and serve it to your eager guests. Enjoy!
