2Better Tuesday Link up #2 And Goodies by Allie- Peanut Butter Cake

I have another great recipe for you that my daughter Allie found and made.  This one, at first I thought was so strange, but I loved it.  She found this one at: Tastykitchen.com


Ingredients

  • FOR THE SHEET CAKE:
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 whole Large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • ⅔ cups Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Water
  • FOR THE PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING:
  • ½ cups Butter
  • ⅔ cups Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 6 Tablespoons Milk
  • 2-½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla




Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 400ºF.
For the cake: In a bowl combine the sugar and flour. In a separate bowl (I used my mixer bowl) mix eggs, baking soda, and sour cream well. Set aside. In a small saucepan combine peanut butter, butter, and water. Bring to a boil. Stir the boiled peanut butter mixture into the flour mixture, then add to the sour cream mixture. Pour into an ungreased 15×10 inch sheet/jellyroll type pan. Bake 20 minutes or until done. Cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.


For the frosting: Combine the butter, peanut butter, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Add the powdered sugar and mix well. Let the frosting cool for a few minutes, then add vanilla. The frosting will be thick; mix well. Pour over cake while both are still warm. Let cool, then serve.


Allie did not make this as a sheet cake, it was made in a 9x13 pan.  It was so moist and believe it or not light tasting.  I think that is what I liked best about it, its lightness.  It was not a heavy, rich cake. 

I hope you enjoy!
