Peanut Butter Layer Cake


Zoey and I spent some time together in the kitchen yesterday and this is what resulted. Absolutely delicious!


1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/4 cups Sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter chips, melted
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups milk

1 cup peanut butter chips, melted
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 cups Sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons milk


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add melted peanut butter chips; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk.

Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

For frosting, in a small bowl, beat the melted chips, cream cheese, vanilla and salt until light and fluffy. Add confectioners' sugar alternately with enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Spread frosting between layers and over top and sides of cake.

Yield: 12-14 servings.
