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

How To Make peanut butter cake

  • 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)

    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)
