Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake

Last night my parents, my aunty and my cousins came round for dinner and to see our new house.  Late in the afternoon I decided it might be nice to make a cake so I quickly whipped up this Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake.  The recipe cake from an old women's weekly cookbook called Cakes & Slices.  This cake was delicious!!! If you are a fan of peanut butter I highly recommend giving this recipe a try.  Just cut small slices because it is quite rich.
