1 Reviews for Peanut Butter Pound Cake with Peanut Butter Glaze
I have tried this recipe twice. It seems that one hour twenty mintues is not long enought. Each time that I baked this cake it was not done. I had to bake it for almost two hours, then the outside was hard. I just cut off the burned hard outside and drizzle the middle with the delicious glaze and everyone loves it. I don't know whats wrong with the batter. Maybe it should be lighter/thinner. Not sure how to acheive this. I would love to give it another try if you can provide information on correcting the batter. The flavor is there so I rated it high. Thank you
