    200g butter, softened
    1 cup raw caster sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 eggs
    180g dark chocolate, melted, cooled
    1/4 cup cocoa powder
    1 3/4 cups self-raising flour
    1 cup buttermilk

  Peanut butter frosting

    125g butter, softened
    3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
    1 cup icing sugar mixture

  Peanut butter ganache

    75g milk chocolate
    75g dark chocolate
    1/3 cup thickened cream
    2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter


Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 6cm-deep, 20cm (base) round cake pan. Line base and side with baking paper. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add melted chocolate and cocoa, beat until just combined.

Step 2

Add half the flour and half the buttermilk. Stir to combine. Repeat with remaining flour and buttermilk. Spoon mixture into pan. Smooth surface. Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand in pan for 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 3

Make frosting: Using an electric mixer, beat butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add icing sugar mixture, beating constantly until combined.

Step 4

Make ganache: Place chocolate, cream and peanut butter in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium (50%) for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds with a metal spoon, or until melted and smooth. Refrigerate for 5 minutes or until thick and spreadable.

Step 5

Meanwhile, using a serrated knife, cut cake into thirds horizontally. Place base on a plate. Spread with half the frosting. Repeat with middle layer and remaining frosting. Sandwich with cake top. Spread cake with ganache. Set aside for 20 minutes to set. Serve.
