Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Pound Cake with a Peanut Butter Glaze

This past weekend I had the itch to bake but didn't really have an idea what I wanted to bake.  I started to go through my recipes on pinterest and came across this delicious recipe from Recipe Girl.  It was so delicious and I think I will have to resist making it all the time!

For the Cake:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup creamy peanut butter (don't use natural)
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
3 cups granulated white sugar
6 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

For the Glaze:
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Heat oven to 325. Spray a tube pan with non-stick spray.

In a medium size mixing bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.  In a large mixing bowl cream together the peanut butter and butter. Add sugar and beat for 5 minutes. Add in eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.  Add the dry ingredients in small amounts to the butter mixture, beat until combined.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Check after an hour to see if the top is browning, if it is then cover with tin foil.  Check with a toothpick to see if it is done.  Once it is done, remove from oven and let cool for 20 minutes before removing it from the pan.

Once the cake has cooled completely make the glaze.  In a medium size bowl mix together the milk and peanut butter then add the vanilla and powdered sugar.  Pour over the pound cake and top with chocolate chips.
