Peanut Butter Pound Cake



  • 1 1/4 cups (2 1/2) sticks butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup peanuts, finely chopped (optional)

  2. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until thoroughly blended.
  3. Add vanilla extract and slowly beat in peanut butter.
  4. Sift flour with baking powder and salt.
  5. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, until well blended.
  6. Line a 9- or 10-inch tube pan on the bottom with wax paper.
  7. Spoon in batter and bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.
  8. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F and bake 15 to 20 minutes longer, until cake tests done. If desired, toward the end of baking, while cake is still soft, sprinkle about 1/3 cup finely chopped peanuts onto batter to give it a crunchy topping.
