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

How to Make Peanut Butter Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cream butter/margarine, sugar and peanut butter. Add beaten egg. Mix until creamy.
  • 2Mix 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.
  • 3For 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.
  • 4Frost 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.
  • 5Chocolate frosting on here is also good.
