For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk

For the Frosting:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional Toppings:

  • Chopped peanuts
  • Chocolate shavings
  • Peanut butter cups


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans, or line them with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and peanut butter until light and fluffy. This can be done using an electric mixer or by hand with a wooden spoon.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the flour mixture, mixing well after each addition. This will ensure a well-incorporated batter.
  6. Divide the batter equally between the prepared cake pans, smoothing the tops with a spatula. Tap the pans gently on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  8. Once baked, remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the pans for about 10 minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the frosting. In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and peanut butter until smooth.
  10. Gradually add the powdered sugar, about 1 cup at a time, alternating with the milk. Mix well after each addition, until the frosting is light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  11. Once the cakes have cooled, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a generous amount of frosting on top, ensuring an even layer. Place the second cake layer on top and frost the sides and top of the cake with the remaining frosting.
  12. For added appeal, you can decorate the cake with chopped peanuts, chocolate shavings, or even peanut butter cups. Get creative and make it your own!
  13. Serve and enjoy this luscious Peanut Butter Cake with family and friends. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
