Peanut Butter and Jelly Cake

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter or shortening (at room temperature)
1/2 cup creamy-style peanut butter or
    reduced-fat peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed

Spoon batter into two greased 8 or 9-inch round layer pans, dividing evenly. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the middle of cake layers comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire racks to finish cooling.
