In the Kitchen ~ Peanut Butter Coffee Cake ~ 4/23/15

This recipe came from a cookbook called "America's Favorites:  Bake Sale".  I was looking for something to bake, had all the ingredients on hand, so win win!  Not to mention yummy!

Peanut Butter Coffee Cake


1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar, divided
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
3/4 cup creamy Peanut Butter, divided
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup Crisco or all-vegetable shortening
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk
Powdered sugar icing (optional)

Preheat oven to 375F.

Combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour and 1/4 cup peanut butter and melted butter until crumbly, set aside.

Cream remaining 1/2 cup peanut butter and shortening.  Slowly beat in remain 1 cup brown sugar.  Add eggs, 1 at a time until fluffy.

Combine remaining 2 cups flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; mix well.  Add flour mixture alternatively with milk to creamed mixture, beating after each addition.

Spread batter in greased 13X9X2 inch baking pan.  Top with reserved crumbly mixture.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.  Cool completely.

Drizzle with icing, if desired.

This coffee cake was really good.  I think if I make it again, I will double the crumb mixture topping.  It was what really made the cake.
