Ingredients

For the Cake

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup 1/2 of a stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk I used nonfat
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Streusel

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9” square pan with cooking spray.
  • Whisk flower, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl.
  • Mix sugars, butter, peanut butter, and egg in a large bowl. Stir in milk. Stir dry ingredients into wet and stir until just combined.
  • Make the crumb topping: stir together brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and melted butter. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Place half the cake batter in the pan and spread to fit. Top with half the streusel. Repeat with remaining cake batter and streusel. Bake for 21-24 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. (Mine took 22 minutes to bake.)
