My nephew Nick creates his own recipes. How cool is that! Here you’ll find his Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake recipe with a note he wrote about cooking from scratch…
I made this peanut butter chocolate cake for my mom, on her birthday. Her two favorite ingredients are peanut butter and chocolate. Her birthday is right after Halloween, so we had plenty of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. One of my favorite things to do is cook but especially bake. This was a fun way for me to give a homemade gift to my mom.
This is my second attempt to bake a cake from scratch using my own recipe. The first cake was a chocolate-cherry cake. For both the cakes were chocolate, and the icing was different for each. I decided to add sour cream to the second cake batter because the first cake was dry.
I encourage kids to try cooking. It doesn’t matter if you are helping your mom around the kitchen or making up your own recipe.
I hope you enjoy making my P.B. and Chocolate Cake.
Your Nephew, Nick
