Peanut Butter Cake

Peanut Butter Cake
1/2 c peanut butter
1/2 c butter, softened
4 eggs
1 package butter cake mix
2/3 c water

1 c peanut butter
1/2 c butter, softened
4 c confectioner's sugar
1/3 c heavy cream

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. grease and flour 2 9 inch round cake pans. (I just used a 13 x 9 in pan)
Combine 1/2 c peanut butter and 1/2 c butter. Cream until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Add cake mix and alternate with water. Stir until just combined. Pour batter into cake pans.
Bake at 325 for 25 minutes or until cake is done in center. Allow cake to cool in pan for 10 min. and then turn out onto cooling rack. Assemble and frost with icing* once it is cool.

combine 1 c peanut butter, 1/2 c butter and cream until light and fluffy. Add the confectioner's sugar. Mix in enough cream to make the frosting spreading consistency. Apply to the cooled cake.

Jason loves this cake. I am not personally a huge fan of peanut butter like he is so I will wait until I taste it to say if it's good or not:)

I made this dip to take to our SS Super Bowl party. It was pretty good. Served it with bagel chips.

1 8 oz. cream cheese
1 15 oz. pizza sauce
1 8 oz. mozzarella cheese
1/4 c. grated Parmesean cheese
1 T. finely chopped rosemary
1 T. finely chopped thyme
1 T. Italian flat leaf parsley

Heat and serve with bagel chips.

Can't remember which blog I got this from.
