Peanut Butter Cake with Cocoa-Peanut Butter Frosting

This cake is oh so good! I first had this cake in Grand Forks, ND. A woman I worked with brought it in one day. I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate and when I had my first bite it was heaven! I lost the recipe and I have been trying to find it for years. Finally I tracked it down! The recipe calls for a cup of milk and I could have sworn that a cup of cold coffee was used. It's possible I wrote it down wrong. Since I didn't have any coffee available while making this cake, I went ahead and used milk. Next time I make it, I'm going to use cinnamon coffee since I love it.
