Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

I LOVE peanut butter!  My sweet friend and "nail lady"... Paige gave me this recipe from her Aunt Cecelia.  Paige and I both love good food and are often talking recipes, etc.  She shared this recipe and told me how yummy it is.  She said, "the frosting looks like bacon grease... but it is soooo good!"

Easy cake, tastes amazing.... doesn't look great!  I thought about sprinkling with peanut butter chips or chopped salted cocktail peanuts... I didn't... but I might in the future!  This cake is moist and dense like a Texas Sheet Cake.  You will love it!



Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

Cake:

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup canola oil
1 1/2 sticks butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup water
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.  In a saucepan, bring oil, butter, peanut butter and water to a boil.  Pour over dry ingredients, mixing well.  Add beaten eggs, vanilla and buttermilk.  Pour into a greased and floured 11 x 15 pan.  Bake at 350 for 15 - 20 minutes.

While cake is baking, make frosting:

Frosting:

1/2 cup evaporated milk or 1/2 & 1/2
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla

Combine milk, sugar and butter in a saucepan.  Bring to a oil, cooking for two minutes.  Remove from heat and add peanut butter and marshmallows, stirring until melted.  Stir in vanilla.  Gently pour and spread over warm cake.
