So, as you know, I've been on a journey towards a healthier me.  That means I am staying away from processed foods as much as possible and limiting my sugar intake.  That being said, every once in awhile, a girl just needs a little cake.  Am I right?

So, a few years ago, one of my favorite cousins, Jamie, brought this cake to my mom's for 4th of July.  I fell in love instantly!!!  It's so rich and moist and wonderful and peanut buttery.  YUM!  Anyway, I made it a few months later for a work function and everybody wanted the recipe.  In fact, one of our 5th grade teacher has requested it for her birthday the last two years.  I love being able to have one piece of my favorite cake and then sharing the rest!  BEST CAKE EVER!!!

So, here's the recipe:



  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 sticks Butter
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter
  • ½ cups Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 stick Butter
  • ½ cups Peanut Butter
  • 6 teaspoons Milk
  • 1 pound Powdered Sugar
    In a large bowl, mix together sugar, baking soda, flour and salt. Set aside.
    Combine butter, water and peanut butter in saucepan and bring to boil. Pour over flour mixture.
    Add milk, vanilla and eggs. Mix.
    Pour in large cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Bake at 400F degrees for 20 minutes.
    Bring butter, peanut butter and milk to boil in saucepan. Add one pound of powdered sugar. Pour warmed frosting over cooled cake.
  • So, just for the record, I do 1 and 1/2 recipes of the icing.
