Friday Food: Peanut Butter Cake

I'm stuck on the desserts again...this time, I needed something I could send to my grandmother and great uncle for Easter. Since we get the leftovers, I thought something in peanut butter would be good. I found this recipe from a Healthy Cooking magazine. Yummy!


Peanut Butter Cake

1/2 cup peanut butter
6 Tbsp butter
1 cup water
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup applesauce
2 eggs
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda

In a large saucepan, bring peanut butter, butter, and water just to a boil. Immediately remove from heat; stir in flour, sugar, yogurt, applesauce, eggs, baking powder, vanilla, salt, and baking soda until smooth.
Pour into a 15x10x1 inch greased baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes.

Frosting

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 Tbsp milk
1 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a small saucepan, melt butter and peanut butter over medium heat; add milk. Bring to boil. Remove from heat. Add confectioners' sugar and vanilla and mix until smooth. Spread over warm cake.
Cool completely on wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers.
