Grease two 8-inch cake pans. Line with waxed paper; grease paper; sprinkle with flour and shake out excess. Divide batter equally between the pans and bake at 350~ for 25 to 30 minutes.
For icing, spread with your favorite peanut butter while cake is warm OR use the Chocolate-Peanut Butter Frosting.

This makes enough to frost and fill a two layer 9 inch cake, or frost a sheet cake.

Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting

1 cup butter (softened to room temperature)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla

Cream butter and peanut butter together.
Add half the powdered sugar and blend.
Blend in milk and vanilla. Add remaining
powdered sugar. Stir until smooth and
well blended.

If you have leftover frosting, use it to make sweet cookie sandwiches using graham crackers.

Peanut Butter Frosting

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup peanut butter
3 cups powdered sugar
2-4 Tbsp. milk
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla

In large bowl, combine butter, peanut butter,
sugar, salt, vanilla, and 2 Tbsp. milk. Mix well,
adding more milk as needed to make a fluffy
spreadable frosting. Frosts 8" layer cake or
sides of 9" layer cake.

Cream-Cheese Peanut-Butter Frosting

1 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat cream cheese and peanut butter in an electric mixer until smooth. Add sugar, milk and vanilla, and beat, starting on low speed and gradually increasing to medium-high speed, until smooth.

Spread over a cooled cake and refrigerate. (Double recipe for a two-layer cake.)

Buttermilk Peanut-Butter Frosting

1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup (light) brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Place buttermilk, brown sugar, baking soda, granulated sugar and butter in a large saucepan (such as a Dutch oven). Bring to a boil and cook without stirring until mixture reaches 232 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and cool 15 minutes. Then add peanut butter.

Spread frosting on cooled cake. If mixture gets too thick when spreading, add a little warm milk or water.

This is on the order of some of the ones already posted, but I think my amounts of ingredients are a little different

Peanut Butter Frosting

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 (16 0z) pkg. powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanillia

Cream peanut butter; gradually add half of sugar, beating well. Add remaining sugar alternately with milk, beating till smooth enough to spread. Add vanilla; beat well. Enough for one 13x 9 cake.

This is my most favorite frosting. Mayonnaise cake with peanut butter frosting is just the best.

1/3 c. margarine
4 c. powdered sugar
1/4 tsp.salt
2-3 Tablespoons milk
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tablespoons peanut butter

Mix all together. I use lots of peanut butter and then of course need to add more milk, but do it to your taste.

Mayo Cake (chocolate)

3 cups sifted flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Grease 2 (9 x 1 1/2) layer pans; line bottoms with waxed paper. Sift together dry ingredients into large bowls. Stir in mayonnaise. Gradually stir in water and vanilla until smooth and blended. Pour in prepared pans. Bake in 350 about 30 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool. Remove from pans. Makes 2 layers.

This cake does not taste anything like mayo, just a moist chocolate cake.
