Sunday in Paris Chocolate Cake

I made Sunday in Paris Chocolate Cake from Dorie Greenspan's Baking Chez Moi for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie posting.
Inspired by a Paris pastry shop, Dorie's recipe uses an ingredient which is unusual in France - peanut butter.
The batter features both bittersweet or semisweet chocolate and cocoa along with peanut butter and chopped peanuts.
I chose to bake the cake in a square pan so that I could decorate it for Valentines Day.  To amp up the peanut butter flavour I replaced the heavy cream in the ganache with peanut butter.  The cake looks rustic and not at all Parisian, perfect for an at home celebration.


  1. A square-did not think of that. It looks lovely with the heart in the center!

  2. The little heart looks cute in the square cake! Lovely cake!

  3. Love the heart in your cake. We loved this one too.
