Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Loaf

I was looking for something to make that I didn't have to go out a buy stuff for and recently I have been looking into making some sort of loaf so when I did some googling a Peanut Butter Pound Cake from Recipe Girl popped up and I was sold (Peanut Butter and Chocolate, I mean come on!).

This is a perfect dessert that is not to sweet, a perfect snack to go with milk, hot cocoa or coffee or you know a perfect breakfast for someone on the run :)
Ingredients(all in my pantry! yay)
Cake
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup creamy peanut butter (don't use natural)
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
3 cups granulated white sugar
6 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Glaze
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Since I didn't make any adjustments to the recipe except for the vessel that I cooked it in, I'll just leave you the link to her website with my cooking instructions for the loaf pans.

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Pour batter into 2 greased Loaf Pans and cook for about an hour. Start checking the loafs about 45 minutes in, sticking a fork in them to see if they come out clean. Mine cooked for a little over an hour.

Tips/Comments
-Don't skip the glaze, its so simple and wonderful.

  2. That looks too good (especially with that peanut butter glaze). I would take the biggest hunk of cake and still ask for 2nds. :) Hope you're having a great holiday season so far. :)

  3. This is a definite winner! The loaf looks so moist and tender-just perfect. I can never say no to the classic marriage of PB and chocolate. Glad you posted this -yum!
