Peanut Butter Pound Cake
Submitted By: Pat Hudson
Serves: 20 Prep. Time: 1:45

1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 cup granulated sugar (7 oz)
1 cup brown sugar packed (8 oz)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (5 oz)
5 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups flour (15 oz)
1 cup milk (8 oz)
2 cups chopped peanuts - optional

With electric mixer, beat together butters and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl. Measure out milk and set aside. Beat 1/3 of flour mixture then 1/3 of milk into creamed butter mixture. Continue until all ingredients are mix. Stir in peanuts. Pour batter into two prepared loaf pans or one bundt pan. Bake in 325 oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Since it is my website and the recipe is short, I'll post it as a comment. I didn't use the optional chopped peanuts but opted to use about 1 c. of Ghiradelli's 60% Chips and 8-FunSized Butterfinger bars smashed into the batter. I crushed the bars as fine as I could with a rolling pin then tossed them into the batter before the flour was added to let the mixer do the rest of the crumbling. Then I tossed in a cup or so (I didn't measure) of the 60% chips after all the mixing was done before I put the batter in the pan (so the chips wouldn't get broken up by the mixer). As to how it tastes--guess we get to wait until Tuesday for that. I made it today because it is so hot in the house I wanted to use the cooler part of today to avoid the hot kitchen tomorrow night. :)

Probably the longest recorded comment on Humzoo but I didn't see an email address to mail the recipe. LOL

O.k. now you've gone too far!!!!! Peanut butter pound cake?? Lord have mercy. I need an occasion to make this...soon!!

Doesn't that sound good? The guy's favorite cookies are PB cookies with chocolate chips so a friend and I worked out the idea of a cake with these flavors. Naturally I had a PB Pound Cake recipe (actually two!). Hope you enjoy it!

Thank you so very much for the recipe! I'm with Leslie on this ~ I will need to find an occasion to make this ...............very soon!!! I can't think of anything that sounds better than this!! Except all of your baked items look like masterpieces and probably taste like that too! Sure wish we lived closer so I could come to your kitchen for cooking lessons!!!
Thanks again!

I'm also going to have to figure out when I can make this (and not have the entire thing sitting at home for Mr. Shoo and me to chow down on). Yummy.

Looks like I found my next baking project.

Glad everyone likes the looks of it. I'm sure you could cut down on some things in the recipe but pound cake should be rich. A great idea would be to use small bundt pans to make many small cakes and freeze all but what you need and then thaw as needed. Nothing wrong with taking sections of the cake and freezing it as well. My friends in MN do that all the time with their quarterly lemon pound cake.

I've never given anyone baking lessons--other than talking to them or writing to them. Could be fun! Feel free to ask questions or request recipes--they are willingly given.

Just bake it! Usually you don't need an excuse to bake when you take your creation to work! I have earned the nickname "Betsy Crocker" at work and they love when I bake! Just for fun!
This cake looks AMAZING.

LOL...I love the nickname, Betsy! Very creative. Mine is simply T.B. (The Baker). It started years ago when I shipped treats to Portland from MN and we "pretended" it was anonymously as "the baker". Of course everyone knew who I was and where I was but the name stuck. Only new folks get confused when I send a memo about treats and sign it "T.B."

We'll find out about that one tomorrow. Today is coffeecake day. The next day (or maybe the one after) is key lime pie day, then peanut-butter cookies with chocolate chips day... We have visiting folks from the field and I've made promises. The only problem I have right now is an 80 degree kitchen discouraging me to bake. We are supposed to cool off starting tomorrow so it might get me back by Weds. :)
