My Pinspiration this week was a little snack cake with a familiar flavor combination, peanut butter and chocolate. I found this on Pinterest last week but the original recipe can be found here at Bake or Break. This was easy and delicious and not too sweet. Perfect for a mid morning or afternoon snack. It reminded me of the Snackin Cakes by Betty Crocker that my mom used to make back in the 70’s.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake, from Bake or Break
2 1/4 cups of flour
2 c brown sugar
1 c creamy peanut butter
1/2 c (1 stick) of softened unsalted butter
1t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 c milk
1 t pure vanilla extract
1 cup Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, grease or spray a 9×11 pan.
In a large bowl combine flour, brown sugar, peanut butter, and butter using an electric mixer.
Remove 1 cup of the mixture and set aside. Mix in baking powder and soda, then add milk and vanilla mix until combined, and then add one egg at a time while mixing.
Pour batter into baking pan.
Sprinkle chocolate chips and reserved batter mixture on top.
Bake for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
