1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

1 ½ cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ cup cocoa

1 cup Nestle’s Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate chips

 

Method

In a mixing bowl, on medium, cream together the butte and sugar till smooth, about 3 minutes.

 

Mix in egg, vanilla, bananas and peanut butter.  It may look curdled but don’t panic.

 

In separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

 

With the mixer on low, add the dry mixture to the wet in three batches.

 

Divide the batter in half.

 

Stir the cocoa into one half of the batter until well combined.

 

Spread the cocoa batter on the bottom of a greased 9×13 inch baking pan.

 

Spread the remaining plain batter over the top of the cocoa batter.

 

Sprinkle the cup of peanut butter chips over the top of the batter.

 

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the cake passes the toothpick test.

 

Let cool at least 15 minutes before removing from the pan to a cooling rack to finish the cooling process
