My love for Reese’s is undying. I always scout for recipes that have Reese’s and one of my favourite is this Earthquake cake. Simple, not fussy, and comes out perfect always! The ingredients are pretty easy to find and I don’t need to be a pro to make this. I even brought this to a party one time and everyone went crazy! This cake is a real crowd-pleaser, heavenly, and perfect in every way!

Step 5: Add spoonfuls of the peanut butter mixture on top of the chocolate layer. Evenly spread around.
Step 6: On top of the peanut butter layer, sprinkle over halves Reese’s peanut butter cups and chocolate chips.
Step 7: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Step 8: Remove from the oven and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
