PBJ traybake

I did it, I managed to make this recipe work really well. So well in fact that I decided to take the remaining cake to school to save us killing each other over the last slice! I have used the idea of a millionaires shortbread as the basis of this recipe (ish)!

The Pink Whisk November Challenge

Goober traybake

Peanut butter shortbread

225g plain flour

75g soft brown sugar

100g softened butter

75g peanut butter

Peanut and jelly filling

175g peanuts (I used dry roasted)

6 heaped tablespoons bramble jelly (any seedless jam will do)

Peanut butter icing

100g icing sugar

2 tablespoons peanut butter

milk to slacken

Preheat the oven to 160C

Mix together the shortbread ingredients with a mixer or your hands until the mixture is a fine crumb.

Tip into a base lined tin and press down until smooth. The back of a spoon helps here.

Prick with a fork and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until golden brown.

Allow to cool a little. Keep the oven on.

Mix together the peanuts and the jelly(jam). Smear over the biscuit base evenly and place back in the oven for a further 10 minutes.

Cool completely before mixing together the icing and peanut butter. Pop into a piping bag, snip off the end and drizzle the top of the bake diagonally back and forth.

Cut into small pieces and serve.

    I am so glad I persevered with this recipe. Make sure you have plenty of friends to share it with as it isn’t a low calorie tray bake!
