This was one my mom would make for my sister's birthday. It has a fudgy candy-like frosting on top.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I remember terrific peanut butter cakes from my childhood...and this one ranks right up there with them!

Ingredients

1 c
peanut butter, creamy
2 c
sugar
1 tsp
vanilla
2 c
all purpose flour, sifted
1/4 c
shortening
3
eggs
1 c
milk
1 Tbsp
baking powder
FROSTING
2 c
sugar
1 c
milk
18 oz
peanut butter
1 tsp
vanilla

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream peanut butter, shortening and sugar.
2
Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
3
Alternate sifted flour with baking powder and milk
4
Pour into greased 9x13 pan. (I typically spray with Pam)
Bake at 350 degrees until done (start testing with toothpick at 25 min)
5
FROSTING:
Cook milk and sugar to soft ball stage; add vanilla; add peanut butter; stir to spreading consistency. Beat until it starts to lose its gloss.
If too thick, add a little milk 1 T. at a time. If too thin, add peanut butter.
Spread on cooled cake.
(this is a fudge type frosting and is as thick as the picture shows)

I truly have never tried it with this recipe (i've just always made it from my Mom's recipe). Here is a website that might help
