Peanut Butter Cake With Peanut Butter Frosting

Wow.... time really flies, isn't it ! Its already the final month of 2014 and 2015 is just about four weeks away. Guess, most home already started doing the spring cleaning. Since my girl is not around to help up this year, I am all by my own. Its OK with me cause I'm doing it one part at a time. Slow & steady, no rush ! hehe... But the next thing I know is I came out with two bottles of peanut butter jam from a drawer which is going to be expired soon. These need to be whipped up quick. And peanut butter cake is on the top of the list. I've been wanting to bake something with peanut butter earlier and what a great excuse to make one.

Ingredients for Peanut butter cake :
125gm  margarine
125gm   peanut butter
180gm   brown sugar
5 eggs
a few drops of NuNaturals vanilla liquid
190gm  all purpose flour
2 tspn  baking powder
1/2 tspn  baking soda
1/2 tspn  salt
3 TB full cream milk

Ingredients for Peanut butter frosting :
230gm   margarine
1 cup  peanut butter
2 cup  icing sugar
80ml  heavy cream
(Beat margarine & peanut butter till creamy then add in sugar & cream and continue beating till well combined. Set aside)

Method :
(1) beat margarine, salt, vanilla & peanut butter till creamy then add in sugar and continue beating till well combined.
(2) add in eggs one at a time and keep on beating till everything well mixed.
(3) in another bowl combine flour, baking powder & baking soda and mix well.
(4) now, stir flour mixture & milk into margarine mixture till everything well cooperated..
(5) pour batter to a 8" greased tray & bake at preheated oven 175'C for about 45-50 minutes.
(6) discharge cake 10 minutes after then let the cake cool on rack. Finally, decorate the cake with peanut butter frosting & keep refrigerated before serving.

Peanut butter frosting is one of my favourite. Its simply addictive !

The cake turns out a little dense though but nice overall. I'm wondering if margarine will be the main causes !

Peanut Butter Cake is my very best favorite, Kristy:) It doesn't look dense at all but perhaps it is the margarine. Maybe next time use apple sauce or oil instead. I love that you used the Vanilla NuNaturals! Thanks Kristy! I'll be saving this!!!

Zoe, there is sugar in the cake. I'm using brown sugar. So its not overly sweet when matching up with the frosting. >o<
