krissywats has had an out-of-body experience: the best cake ever.
It’s banana cake with chocolate chips, peanut butter frosting, and chocolate shavings on top. Some people call it the Elvis Cake.
Use cake flour, butter, and regular chocolate chips in the cake and then Scharffen Berger 62 percent cocoa shavings on the outside. Also add an extra 1/2 cup of peanut butter and 1/4 cup butter to the frosting to make it more peanut buttery. Oh, and use buttermilk to add tang.
What you get is totally crazy. It stays moist for four days without refrigeration, and it’s impossible to eat without milk. It’s a classic.
krissywats says don’t add the cayenne to the frosting, but halene says to try it. It’s “surprisingly yummy.”
