Peanut Butter Pound Cake
Peanut Butter Pound Cake | Source

Sometimes there is nothing better than a glass of milk and a slice of pound cake. A pound cake's dense texture can satisfy almost anyone's sweet tooth.

Pound cakes are one of my favorite desserts to make because they are usually not too sweet and a small piece goes a long way. They are also easy to take to parties and are always a crowd pleaser.

Peanut butter is another favorite of mine, and many other people, and peanut butter pound cake makes for one of the best treats you will ever eat.

This recipe produces a dense, not too sweet, pound cake that packs plenty of peanut butter flavor. It is also rich and moist.

For a simple, traditional pound cake, just sprinkle some powdered sugar on top and serve. For even more peanut butter flavor, add a peanut butter frosting. For those of you who love peanut butter and chocolate together, add chocolate to the frosting for a taste that can't be beaten.

Whichever way you choose to serve this cake, you will not be disappointed.

How to prepare a cake pan

One of the keys to a successful cake is preparing the pan correctly. Everyone has had a cake stick at one time or another and it is not fun.

  1. Make sure your cake pan is completely clean. Using a paper towel or a piece of wax paper, spread a layer of shortening on the inside of the pan. Coat the entire inside of the pan, including any crevices found on fancier pans. Don't forget the center of tube/bundt pans.
  2. Pour in a generous amount of flour and carefully spread it around the entire pan. You'll need to roll the pan around a lot. Do this over the sink because the flour will spill out. Tap pan to get flour to spread around. To get the center of tube pans, pour a little flour on your hand and sprinkle where needed. Tap out excess flour.
  3. Make sure that every area is covered. If you miss a spot, just use your finger to add a little shortening and tap the pan to cover with flour. If there is a corner where there is too much flour, tap it out so the cake does not bake with a lump of flour in one corner.

Even if your pan says it has a non-stick coating, take the time to prepare it. Cakes tend to stick to any pan. There are other things people use, like sprays, or the wrappers from sticks of butter, but after many years of baking, the method above has never let me down.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°. Prepare a large tube or bundt pan by greasing and flouring it. Set pan aside. Update: A couple people have commented that their cake overflowed while baking. This recipe makes a large cake and I used a large tube pan. Only fill your bundt/tube pan up about 3/4 full. Don't let the extra batter go to waste though, make some muffins or a small loaf.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
  3. On medium speed, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the brown sugar and peanut butter and continue mixing. Add the eggs, one at a time. Wait until one egg is fully mixed in before adding the next one. Add vanilla.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and the milk to the creamed mixture. Alternate between the flour mixture and the milk, using about a fourth of the ingredient at a time. Always begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix completely.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 60 - 70 minutes. Start checking to see if it is done at 60 minutes using a wooden toothpick. Continue checking every 5 minutes to make sure it does not overcook. When the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done.
  6. Remove from the oven and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then remove it from the cake pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. Dust with powdered sugar or frost as desired.
  8. Note that this recipe makes a large cake. For smaller pound cakes, use loaf pans or even mini bundt cake molds. Adjust the cooking time accordingly since they will not need as much time to bake.

      ktrapp - I used skim milk so that got rid of all of the calories (LOL). At least that is what a I tell myself when I am eating a piece. It's definitely a good one to take to a party or potluck. That way it is not sitting around the house calling my name. Glad you enjoyed the hub. Thanks for commenting.

      Austinstar 3 years ago from Somewhere in the universe

      I made this cake last night and wow! It's fantastic. It is a large cake, but I didn't have any trouble with it running over.

      I used 1 cup less sugar than called for, and no frosting for me either.

      Also since it wasn't done at 60 minutes. I increased the oven temp to 350 F. and baked for another 10 minutes. I think the cake should have been baked at 350 for 60 min.

      But I am delighted with this cake. I should take a photo!

      Glimmer Twin Fan 3 years ago

      I'm so glad to hear it Austinstar - I bake at a lower temp because I find if the oven is too high the outside gets too done before the rest of the cake. Also, I think my oven temp tends to run a little high. Glad you liked it and good to know it's good with less sugar! Thanks for coming back and commenting.

      Hi catgypsy - This is definitely a yummy cake and it makes my mouth water too. I just can't make it too often or I would gain far too much weight and I am trying to take it off. Thanks for commenting.

      This sounds so good! I love to bake but I avoid actually eating any of what I make by giving them to the local police and fire departments. I also have new neighbors-3 college guys. We all know they eat anything, especially if it has peanut butter in it. I am making this today- I may have to make two full size and use any excess batter to make smaller cakes for the boys next door. I also plan on making the chocolate peanut butter icing. I may add chocolate chips to the batter instead :) Sometimes things just evolve, lol. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Betty Sue Bruckner 3 years ago

      Do you think this could be made in a 9x12 pan as well?

    • No 3 years ago

      I just made this and it turned out terrible. I was skeptical at first since this recipe uses baking powder (baking powder causes cakes to collapse in the middle) and that is what happened. I am at a high altitude but I adjusted the leavener and it still blew up in my oven and collapsed. Besides that it did not have much of a peanut butter flavor at all so I will not be making it again.

    • Glimmer Twin Fan profile image
      Author

      Glimmer Twin Fan 3 years ago

      Hi Betty Sue - I don't know if it could be made in a 9x13. You would definitely have to adjust the batter amount and the cooking time. Since it bakes slowly, it might not work well because it would be thinner. Good luck if you give it a try.

    • Glimmer Twin Fan profile image

      No - Sorry you had a bad this experience with this recipe. I have made this many times without any problems. I don't live at a high altitude though.

    • mjfon324 3 years ago

      I made this cake today and it has became my favorite cake, it is so moist and wonderful, melts in your mouth. And the helpful tip that it makes to much, not to overfill your pan, sure saved my oven, I made cupcakes with my left over batter. I have shared this recipe and gave it great reviews, I am sure more people will be making it now. Thanks so much.

      Sorry I was not able to respond to your question sooner MaMa Suzy. I was away from my computer for a while. I don't know if one can replace sugar with splenda. I have never cooked with it before. Perhaps their website or the package has some instructions about that. Thanks for reading and I am sorry I was unable to answer your question.

      Made this exactly as described, except used two 4x8 coated metal bread pans, baked for 60 minutes, came out perfect. NOTE: recipe should specify whether salted or unsalted is used for pound cake batter. Takes the guesswork out. I used 1 stick salted, 1 stick unsalted to make up the cup of butter.

      Glimmer Twin Fan 16 months ago

      Hi Mels - It makes one large tube pan cake, but if you want to divide into regular loaves, I would guess, but I really don't know...2 or 3 regular loaves. You could probably do mini loaves as well. This would be good like that, but definitely watch the cooking time closely. Mini loaves (and even regular loaves) would bake much faster than the whole cake. Thanks for stopping by!
