Peanut-butter poke cake

Once upon a time, there was a mother with a five month old baby who loved cake more than anyone in the land....

 That's me by the way.

I would bake a cake every single day of my life if I could & yes, I'd eat the entire thing too! So I've decided to start making all my cakes small. 8x8 small. So when I do eat the whole thing I don't have to hate myself for a week. Really though, no one should feel bad about eating this cake.
You can make it with just about regular pantry items, which is what I like about it.


1 cup sugar
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup cake flour
1 large egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter


1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tbsp milk
2 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup butter

Combine the sugar & flours in a bowl and whisk well.
In your mixing bowl add your eggs, baking soda, and sour cream.
In a small sauce pan combine peanut-butter, butter, and water.
Then pour the flour mixture & the peanut butter mixture into the mixing bowl and mix until just incorporated.

Preheat oven to 400.
Pour into greased 8x8 pan, and bake for 25 minutes.

Now onto the poke cake part... this wasn't a planned poke cake. I broke it yall. But I like poke cake so it was okay! Again with the cooking spray, I hate buying it. I'm going to have too. So the bottom part was broken, I poked lots of holes in it & fixed my problems. (:

Now make the icing.
Butter, peanut-butter & milk in a small saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil and stir constantly. Take off burner, add powdered sugar & vanilla and mix well.

Pour over the cake while both are still warm.

Now you have a delicious peanut butter poke cake!

Behooooooolllld the ugly cake~

Mmmm, yes I ended up eating the entire thing myself.

Silly husband not liking peanut-butter. CRAZY!!!
