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.

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.
