To make this Peanut butter Passion Cake You�Il need The following Ingredients:

1 tsp vanilla extract
3 c all purpose flour
3/4 c cocoa, unsweetened
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 c coffee, room temperature (water can be substituted for the coffee but it�s purpose is to enhance the chocolate flavor of the cocoa)
1 c buttermilk

2. Gradually add remaining ingredients (alternating wet and dry) and beat for 2 to 3 minutes at medium speed.
3. Pour batter into prepared pan(s) and bake for approximately 40 to 45 minutes or so until cake is done. Cool for 5 minutes and carefully remove from pan(s). Note: 8-inch and 9-inch cakes will bake in less time than 10-inch and 9x13x2-inch cakes so check for doneness.
4. Using an electric mixer, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, salt, peanut butter until smooth. Using a spatula, gently fold in whipped topping until smooth. Chill frosting for about an hour (even overnight is okay). This frosting tastes like.
