Paula's Story

When I was little, my mom used to bake us delicious cakes. I enjoyed the great smell and taste. Being around her at that time got me interested in baking and now that I’m grown up I practice baking thanks to the influence I had when I was little. I want my children to have the same experience I had, so I bake them the flavors they love. Knowing they love peanut butter, I decided to bake something with the good flavor of peanut butter with a little mix of Mexican tradition. The combination turned out to be a wonderful idea, which my children truly enjoy.

Ingredients

2 c
granulated sugar
4 large
eggs
1 c
vegetable oil
2 c
peanut butter
2 c
all-purpose flour
2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
baking powder
2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
chopped peanuts
1/2 c
caramel for ice cream
FOR THE FLAN:
1 can(s)
evaporated milk
1 can(s)
condensed milk
1/4 c
peanut butter
5 large
egg yolks
2 large
whole eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
PREHEAT THE OVEN AT 350ºF. Grease a floured one 12"x4" bound cake pan.
Pour the caramel into the prepared pan.
2
Sift the flour three times and add the baking soda, baking powder and sift again one more time.
3
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the oil, peanut butter, eggs, salt and sugar until you reach a fluffy consistency. Add the flour in thirds and mix well.
Pour into the pan.
4
For the flan: In a blender, mix all ingredients together. (Or use a large bowl and a whisk.) Pour into the pan (over cake batter.)
5
If you don't have a Bain Marie (bano maria), you can make your own by placing the bundt pan into a larger pan filled with water. Bake the cake for around 2 hours (no less than 2 hours because the cake and the flan need that time to bake well.)
6
Unmold the cake when it has cooled down (when you can safely touch the pan with your hands.)

I JUST WANT TO SAY, I SHARE WITH YOU THIS RECIPE WITH ALL MY LOVE. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!
