Last week I posted this on Facebook:" We had the most unhealthy lunch today. We had cubed steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, carrots, and peanut butter sheet cake."
A couple people inquired about the Peanut Butter Sheet cake and I told them I would post it on my blog. I have a ton of other recipes to share, but bumped this one up on the list since their seemed to be an interest in it. It is by no means nutritious or fat free and I'm okay with that! It has tons of butter and powdered sugar in it. Yum!
Mix the sugar, baking soda, flour and salt. (That cute little hand stirring just makes this recipe that much sweeter!)...
My little helper decided that the beater was easier to stir with....
In a pan, bring water, butter, and peanut butter to a boil.
Add to the flour mixture then add milk, eggs, and vanilla.
Mix well then add to a jelly roll pan or large cookie sheet. I guess I forgot to photograph this step!
Bake the cake and let cool.
Once the cake is cool, make the icing!!!!!!!!!!
In a pan bring the butter, peanut butter and milk to a boil.
Reduce the heat and add the powdered sugar.
Spread on top of cooled cake.
Tip: While pouring the icing, try to distribute as evenly as possible because the icing thickens quickly which makes it harder to spread. I also added a smidge more milk to the icing (maybe another tablespoon) because it seemed a bit too thick for my liking!
