Does anyone have a good recipe for a peanut butter cake? I have tried to google some recipes, but can't find anything good!

It will be a while before I need it, but I would like to try a few different recipes if anyone is willing to share. I really appreciate it!

Thanks, MessyBaker

Thanks Staceyboots!

I was wondering if you can double the recipe?

AND...

What kind of icing do you use? I guess I'm thinking chocolate?

Thanks so much for you response, MessyBaker

messybaker,

yes...the recipe can easily be doubled and chocolate buttercream goes great with peanut butter cake

i use a yellow cake mix prepared like the package says and add 1/2 c. peanut butter. you can double this for sure and i try to pursuade people to get chocolate ganache to go with the peanut butter cake! yum!

If you want super easy and super tasting, here's the one I make:

2 pkgs cake mix
1 jar creamy peanut butter
8 egg whites
1 c butter, softened
1 1/2 c vanilla coffee creamer

Throw it all in a bowl and blend 'til well combined. Batter is thick, but only fill the pans half-full as it rises quite a bit (yet it stays flat - no dome at all if you use Bake Even Strips). I bake it at 325.

I usually fill it with 3 c Bettercreme blended with 1 c peanut butter and chopped Reeses Peanut Cups mixed in, but chocolate ganache is another favorite - or raspberry filling for a PBJ style.

staceyboots, your recipe looks delish, I'd like to try it. Have you ever tried some sort of fruit buttercream to make a PBJ cake? Any suggestions? I have 3 little girls who would love that.

shogg,

i was actually going to recommend your suggestion to the OP but i've never actually tried it. i do remember seeing a bakery offering a white cake filled with strawberry filling and covered with peanut butter frosting

I use the one from the Betty Crocker website for Peanut Butter Cupcakes. It starts with a yellow cake mix and I get rave reviews. However I use the icing recipe from the Peanut Butter Cake VII (from this site). It's a peanut butter icing without chocolate. It's de-lish!
Good luck!!

I just wanted to clarify on the creamer.......liquid or powder? My guess was liquid!

This sounds delish and super easy! Thanks!

Yep, liquid creamer! Everyone loves this cake icon_smile.gif

I forgot!! It's even better using the butter recipe yellow cake mix instead of white cake mix.
