DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 9x13x2" cake pan.
  • Line it with parchment paper, then grease and flour the pan.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed until light yellow, about 2 minutes.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the vanilla, eggs and peanut butter and mix until ingredients are combined.
  • In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture.
  • Mix just until combined.
  • Spread 2/3 of the dough into the prepared cake pan and spread over the bottom witha knife or offset spatula.
  • Spread the jam evenly over the dough.
  • Drop small globs of the remaining dough evenly over the jam.
  • Don't worry if all the jam isn't covered; it will spread in the oven.
  • Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and bake for 45 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Cool and cut into squares.
