Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

After a success on turning yellow cake into peanut butter cake, I discovered I love peanut butter desserts. I plan on bringing this cake (bundt style drizzled with chocolate icing) to a spaghetti dinner tomorrow night at church. I don't always have time for a fancy layered cake so a bundt makes it quick to make and easy to decorate.

2 1/4 cups white flour
1 1/3 c sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 c creamy peanut butter
1/2 c softened butter
1/4 c shortening
1 1/4 c milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 c chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan.
Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, or stand mixer bowl. Add peanut butter, butter, shortening, milk and vanilla. Beat 2 minutes on low/medium, or 1 minute with the flat beater on #2 for stand mixer.

Scrape bowl, add eggs, beat for 1 minute on low/medium or 30 seconds #2 w/stand. Scrape bowl and beat for 2 minutes on high, 1 minute #6 w/stand.

Add chocolate chips and stir by hand, or mix in on stir for stand (10-15 seconds).

Pour into pan and bake 45 minutes for bundt. Test doneness by inserting a toothpick into center, the cake is done when pick comes out clean.

Let sit 15 minutes, and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Best topped with Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting or glazed with Chocolate Glaze.

I always dreamed and wanted a kitchenaid, and Santa figured me out and had one under the tree last year!!!! Best friend a kitchen girl could have.
