Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake

Snack cakes can’t be beat when your kids want to bake with you.  And since peanut butter and chocolate is probably my kids’ favorite flavor combination, so I wasn’t very surprised when Sam chose this cake to bake.  He pretty much made this on his own with me just keeping an eye on things, and he did a great job.  All the kids hanging around loved it, and it made a perfect after school snack.  Guess that’d be why it’s a snack cake, eh?

Recipe:  Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake

(from Bake or Break)

2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 c. light brown sugar
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 eggs
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 9″x 13″ baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

Whisk together flour, brown sugar, peanut butter, and butter in a large bowl.  Remove 1 cup of mixture and set aside.   Mix in baking powder and baking soda.  Mix in milk and vanilla.  Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.  Transfer batter to prepared pan.  Sprinkle top with reserved flour mixture and chocolate chips. Bake 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
