Peanut Butter Cake

This is a recipe I adapted from my favorite chocolate cake recipe and my favorite frosting. I used crunchy for the cake and creamy for the frosting, feel free to experiment with textures. This recipe is for 1 cake pan, so double it for 2 pans.

1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup hot water

Combine all ingredients except water in a bowl and mix well. Add hot water. The batter should be very thin.

Pour into a greased and floured cake pan and bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

For the peanut butter frosting:

1/4 cup peanut butter
1/8 cup shortening
2 Tbsp water
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dash of salt
1 cup powdered sugar

Combine these ingredients and mix with an electric mixer until creamy and fluffy.

And we have...Cake!
