Chocolate Espresso Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

This is a huge favorite and a combination that goes way back. Chocolate and Peanut Butter cakes were a favorite of my grandmother, Emma Weaver. For her 90th birthday this was the cake she requested. This is a very moist version with some wonderful depth of flavor. The Espresso or dark coffee gives it a rich flavor complimented by flavorful creamy peanut butter. Easy as easy gets. Bake this one up and enjoy.
