Molasses Cake with Peanut Brittle Cream Filling
Make this cake the day before you want to serve it.
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup homemade unsalted butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg, beaten well
3 TBS molasses
3/4 cup homemade buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract
1 cup ground peanut brittle
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour two 8 inch cake pans.
Cream butter and white sugar together for 5 minutes. Add well beaten egg and molasses. Sift flour before measuring. Add salt and baking powder; sift again. Add baking soda to buttermilk and add alternately with dry ingredients. Add vanilla.
Pour into prepared cake pans and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from tins after 10 minutes and cool completely. Put layers together with filling and pile the rest on top.
To make filling, force enough peanut brittle through a food chopper to equal 1 cup. Fold into the stiffly beaten sweetened cream.
