Step 3: Combine the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl until well mixed.

Step 5: Mix the flour mixture and buttermilk with the egg mixture until incorporated.

Step 6: Pour the batter over the prepared baking dish and evenly spread on the bottom.

Step 7: Bake in the preheated oven for about an hour or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.

Step 8: Once done, remove from the oven and onto a wire rack. Allow cooling at room temperature.

Step 9: Meanwhile, add the peanut butter and butter in a medium mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to combine until well mixed.
