Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake

There is something about chocolate and peanut butter mixed together that just makes my mouth water! This cake is the perfect combination! Not too much peanut butter or chocolate. I also love the fact that this cake doesn’t need any frosting. The crumb topping with chocolate chips is the perfect topping!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake

2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

    I’m so disappointed with this cake. I followed the recipe exactly, the only exception was I accidentally bought chocolate chunks and not chips. I had to bake it 10 minutes longer than it called for to get it to not be wet in the middle and it came out good but very dry. I don’t know if the chunks could cause that but I won’t be making it again. Not worth it.
