Found this in an old cookbook and I've altered it slightly for a more moist cake.

Cook:

45 Min

Ingredients

1/2 c
butter or margarine
3/4 c
peanut butter (have also used crunchy peanut butter)
1 c
sugar
1
egg
1 3/4 c
flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 c
sour milk (i add a tablespoon of vinegar to 2% milk)

FROSTING

1/8 c
peanut butter
4 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
1 Tbsp
hot water
1 1/3 c
powered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream butter/margarine, sugar and peanut butter. Add beaten egg. Mix until creamy.
2
Mix baking soda into flour and add into creamed mixture alternatly with milk. Blend until it looks a little fluffy. Usually about a minute on medium speed with a hand mixer. Bake in 350 degrees oven until done. Usually about 45 min or so.
3
For the frosting (make while cake is cooling). Combine all ingredients and mix on medium speed with hand mixer until creamy. If too thin, you can add a bit more powered sugar or a bit more peanut butter or cream cheese depending on the flavor you prefer.
4
Frost cake when cooled. You can put this in 9 inch round pans for a layer cake or in a 9 x 13 in pan. More frosting would need to be made for a layer cake or you can always use something else for the filling.
5
Chocolate frosting on here is also good.
