3 – Continue whisking and add butter, egg, and vanilla extract, one by one.
4 – Prepare batter from it. Use water for having the desired level of consistency.
5 – Divide the batter uniformly among the two ramekins or mini cake pans, and bake for about 12 to 15 minutes. Then, allow the same to cool in the pan at room temperature.
Peanut Butter Frosting:
1 – Beat butter, cream cheese, and peanut butter in a medium-sized bowl.
2 – Continue beating the mixture while adding sweetener, vanilla extract, and whipping cream, one by one. Add 1 tablespoon of whipping at a time. Keep doing it until a spreadable consistency is reached.
3 – Place one cake layer on a plate and spread about 1/3rd of the frosting. Now, add the second cake layer and spread another 1/3rd portion of the peanut butter frosting.
4 – Spread the remaining 1/3rd frosting on the sides of the cake layers.
5 – Refrigerate the cake for 30 minutes, at least. The longer, the better.
1 – Heat whipping cream in a small pan over the flame or inside the oven.
2 – Add the chocolate and sweetener to it and let them melt.
3 – Whisk the mixture to get a uniform, pourable mixture.
4 – Pour the chocolate ganache over the cake and allow it to drip down from the sides.
● If the cake bases have domes, slice the top off to make the same even and soft.
● If the chocolate ganache becomes much too thick, add 2 teaspoons more of the whipping cream.
