Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

You may have heard of Texas Sheet Cake, well this is a twist on that recipe where peanut butter is substituted for chocolate. These cakes are easy to make and great to take to any summer gathering like Memorial Day or the 4th of July. What sets them apart from other cakes is their glaze-like frosting. They also tend to be thinner than a traditional cake and baked in a rectangular pan. This Peanut Better Sheet Cake recipe comes from my church’s cookbook “Celebrate the Journey” and was submitted by a wonderful cook and family friend, Dawn Boszor, who is best known for her cookies. If you want to try making both or experimenting with a mix of the two, chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting, you essentially substitute smaller amounts of cocoa powder for the peanut butter.

Enjoy! –Chelsea
