The perfect sweet treat to share with your friends over a cup of tea or coffee, to indulge in for a breakfast in bed kind of day, and by far my favorite cake of all time! The peanut butter gives this classic recipe a sweet and buttery flavor that everyone loves.

Preparation

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF. Line a standard loaf tin with baking parchment.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients.
  3. If you haven't melted the coconut oil yet, do so now (either in the microwave oven for about half a minute or in a double-broiler). Whisk the oil, milk and vanilla extract together in a bowl or cup, then fold into the dry ingredients.
  4. Pour half of the batter into a separate bowl. In one bowl, fold in the 2 tbsp of cocoa powder; in the other, mix in the peanut butter.
  5. Now pour half of the peanut butter batter at the bottom of the lined tin. Spread out with a spatula, then do the same with the chocolate batter. Repeat with the remainder of the PB batter, and finish with the rest of the chocolate batter.
  6. Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes. Insert a skewer; if it comes out clean, the cake is ready.
  7. Leave on a wire rack to cool COMPLETELY before removing from the tin and slicing.

Notes

If you like your cakes extra peanut buttery, add up to 3 tbsp peanut butter.
