Peanut Butter Pound Cake

This recipe is from my grandmother.  She passed away last year and I had heard stories of this cake and my mom was kind enough to share it with me.  It was so good!  We loved it.  It would have only been better if I could have shared a piece with her.

I had a recipe I believe is the same as yours and served it without the icing and it was delicious.
