  • Cream together 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup peanut butter. Stir in white and brown sugars and beat well, then add the beaten eggs and 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture into the batter alternately with the milk.

  • Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 35 minutes. Frost when cool.

  • To Make Frosting: Blend together 1/8 cup butter or margarine, 3 cups confectioners' sugar, 4 1/2 tablespoons evaporated milk and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, stirring slowly until mixture holds its shape. Then beat until very smooth. If necessary, gradually add tiny amounts of evaporated milk to bring to spreading consistency.
