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!
