This is the greatest thing since sliced bread! Sliced cake! Basically it’s an inside out cake that looks exactly like a sandwich…too cute right!?!?
Heat oven to 315*
Grease the inner bottom surface of your Cakewich pan
• 2 cups plain (all purpose) flour
• 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
• 1 1/2 cups sugar
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 6 large egg whites
• 3/4 cup milk
• 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
• Heaping 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
• 3/4 cup icing sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup fruit jelly, slightly warmed
Step 1-Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl, mixing well with a whisk. Whisk together egg whites and milk in a medium mixing bowl until just combined.
Step 2- With mixer, cream butter and sugar for about 5 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and beat vigorously. Reduce the speed to low and add one quarter of the flour, then one third of the milk mixture, mixing until just combined and scraping down the bowl after each addition. Repeat until all ingredients are just combined.
Step 3-Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula. Pour the batter into the Cakewich pan and smooth the top. Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan on a cooling rack for 1 hour, then un-mold it to finish cooling right side up.
Step 4- For the frosting, place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer for several minutes or until just combined. Gradually mix in the icing sugar until just combined. Add the vanilla and beat for 3 minutes until fluffy.
To assemble, use a serrated bread knife to slice off the “dome” of the cake, then slice again through the center horizontally. Spread the peanut butter frosting on the first layer of the cake. Spread a thin layer of jelly on top of the frosting. Place the second layer of cake on the first, making sure the cut side is visible.
