Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the peanut butter, butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with 3/4 cup milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan.
  4. To make Peanut Butter Frosting: In a large bowl, cream peanut butter; gradually beat in half of confectioners' sugar. Add remaining confectioners' sugar alternately with 1 cup of milk, beating until smooth enough to spread. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread frosting on top of cake and sprinkle with peanuts.

Delicious cake-- although I recommend using margarine instead of butter or fewer eggs as the cake was very heavy in the middle.

Although the peanut butter taste was exceptional, the cake was not ... way too dry. If I were to try it again I would try adding salad oil or yogurt to give it some moisture.

1 cup of milk to 1 lb confectionery sugar is too much. Use about 1/4 cup of milk to get a creamy spreadable frosting. Mix peanut butter with confectionery sugar than add as much milk to make creamy instead of alternating

I followed the recipe exactly. The cake was extremely dense, thick and somewhat dry tasting. It was tolerable but I would not make it again. My whole family loves peanut butter so I assumed this would be a real winner but it was not.

This is a pound cake recipe. There is too much flour in the batter, which causes the center to thicken up much more than a cake should be. Flavor is good, but take out at least a 1/4 cup of flour.

Hi all, I made this cake this morning, in fact I actually made two of them...one a double layer and the other, a bundt cake. The cake tastes really good and the frosting is to die for. For the middle layer on each I took some regular store vanilla frosting and mixed it with grape jelly so I ended up with a peanut butter and jelly cake. I highly recommend!
