Missy's Peanut Butter Passion Cake

Melissa Dommert Recipe

By Melissa Dommert mdommert

I have never shared this specific recipe until now. It’s a wonderful cake and has been a prizewinning blessing to me. It won a 1st place ribbon and $100. prize in the 2010 Kroger Employee Holiday Baking Contest and a 1st place medal in the adult dessert category at the Texas Rice Festival cooking contest held in Winnie, Texas, last weekend. It’s a blessed cake! Nothing would please me more than to hear from one of you telling me that you tried it and liked it too! Hope you enjoy!
