I call it a family cake, because it's so huge:)
It's easy to make, too, and what's more important, it's pretty economical!
So what do you need for this great dessert?
For the cake,
+/- 2c sugar
2/3c cocoa powder
3tsp baking powder
2/3c vegetable oil (I always use virgin olive oil in all my recipes)
1tsp vanilla extract
1c coffee, cooled (I used instant decaf variety since coffee usually gives me headaches)
For the frosting:
3 oz cream cheese
4 tbsp peanut butter
+/- 2c powder sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract.
To make the cake, combine dry ingredients in a bowl, add eggs, milk, oil, vanilla, beat and stir. Add coffee (batter will be thin), pour into a rectangular baking pan and bake at 175*C (350*F) for ab. 40 min. Take out of the oven and let cool. Meanwhile, make the frosting.
Beat the cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth, add sugar, milk and vanilla, spread over the cake. Keep it the fridge. It's very moist and personally I find it tastes better the next day.
