Continue beating the whipped cream as you drizzle in the peanut butter mixture. Whip until fully combined. Stir in the peanut butter chocolate cookie sandwiches and peanut butter cups. Reserve one cup of the ice cream for the top in a small container. Pour the mixture into the cake pan and freeze both until solid - at least four hours.

Bake the Cake

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F Grease and flour an 8-inch cake pan. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt for the cake. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, oil, vanilla, and coffee. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry until there are no streaks. Some lumps are okay. Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with only a crumb or two sticking to it. Remove the cake and allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Remove from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack, then freeze.
