I had a chocolate craving today and since I only had chocolate ice cream I had to make a cake. To make things yummier I added Reese’s peanut butter chips inside!

For the dough

50 gr of granulated sugar

50 gr of butter

10 gr fresh yeast

150 ml lukewarm milk

250 gr all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt


Chocolate filling

50 gr of butter

50 gr of quality dark chocolate (60-70%)

30 gr of powder sugar

10 gr of cocoa powder

cup Reese’s peanut butter chips (60 gr)


1 egg to brash the dough before baking



50 gr water

50 gr of granulated sugar


In the bowl of your electric mixer fitted with the dough attachment, mix all the dough ingredients. Kneed for 8 minutes until the dough is combined and a bit sticky. Move the dough to a lightly coated with spray oil bowl and let rise for about 2 hours.


Roll out the dough to a rectangular shape.


In separate bowl melt the chocolate and butter. Then add the cocoa and powdered sugar and mix. Spread the chocolate mixture on the rectangular dough using an offset spatula and add peanut butter chips.


Roll the dough into a tube and cut it into 8 chocolate rose pieces. Place the chocolate roses into a prepared pan and let rise for another hour.


Brash the cake with egg wash and bake for 30 minutes at 175 degrees Celsius

A couple of minutes before the cake is ready combine the sugar and water and heat just until all the sugar is dissolved. When the cake comes out of the oven brash with the syrup and let it cool on a wire rack.
