Peanut Butter & Jelly Coffee Cake

This is one of my favorite recipes for a brunch or company. Just make sure to have some milk or coffee on hand, it is rich. I hope you enjoy it! Recipe from one of my Better Homes & Gardens cookbooks.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Coffee Cake

2    cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2    teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1    cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
2    eggs
1/4 cup butter, softened
1    cup strawberry or grape jelly
   Crumb Topping

Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the milk, peanut butter, eggs, and butter. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed till combined. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute, scraping the side of the bowl constantly.

Spread about two-thirds of the butter into prepared baking pan. Stir jelly and spoon over batter. Drop remaining batter in small mounds on top of the jelly. Sprinkle with Crumb Topping. Bake in a 350 oven for 30 to 35 minutes or till golden brown. Serve warm. Makes 1 coffee cake (12 servings).

Crumb Topping: In a small mixing bowl stir together 1/2 cup packed brown sugar and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour. Cut in 1/4 cup peanut butter and 3 tablespoons butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
