Sooooo yummy

So last night for FHE treat I made a cake that I will dub "Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Cake." It's not a very inventive name, cuz that's exactly what it tastes like. (At least to me, who cannot remember the last time I had one, considering they don't have them in Brazil.) The basic recipe is Betty Crocker's, with some modifications by me. Try it, you'll love it.

2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup Nesquik or some kind of chocolate milk mix (if you use cocoa, increase the sugar)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 - 1 3/4 cups milk (I'm not sure exactly how much I put in)
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
3 large eggs

Mix all ingredients together with an electric mixer for at least five minutes. Pour into greased, floured pans. Two 9" pans for 25-30 minutes, three 8" pans for 30-35 minutes. Take it out when a toothpick comes out slightly damp. You want this cake to be MOIST. Cool for ten minutes in the pans and an hour out of the pans. Then frost with the following:

3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter OR peanut butter, if you want it REALLY peanut butter-y
2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 baking cocoa
4 Tbsp. milk (you'll need a little more if you used peanut butter)

Like I said. Soooooooo yummy.
