♥ Peanut Butter 'N' Jelly Cake ♥


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • FROSTING:
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1-3/4 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons milk
  • 3/4 cup grape jelly

Directions:

  • In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to peanut butter mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
  • Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • For frosting, in a small bowl, beat butter and peanut butter until smooth. Add the vanilla, confectioners' sugar and enough milk to achieve spreading consistency.
  • Place one cake layer on a serving plate; spread with jelly. Top with the remaining cake layer; frost top and sides of cake with frosting. Yield: 12 servings.

Editor's Note: Reduced-fat peanut butter is not recommended for this recipe.
