I have no idea when national peanut butter day is! This is certainly what I am serving when I find out though. Elegantly adorned or fancy-free, this peanut butter pound cake suits any occasion.
1 cup Butter, softened
3/4 cup Creamy peanut butter
3 cups Granulated sugar
2 tsp Vanilla extract
3 cups All-purpose flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 cup Milk
Oven Temp ~ 350°

Pan Type ~ 10 inch tube pan
In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter,
peanut butter, sugar and vanilla, beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one
at a time, beating well after each addition.
In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture alternately with milk. Pour peanut butter batter into prepared pan. Bake Double Peanut Butter Pound Cake until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
