Easy Peanut Butter Cake

Peanut Butter Cake

This is a Peanut Butter Cake is great for your family or any parties that are coming up for the holidays! It is so light and moist that it almost melts in your mouth!!

There is something so inviting when peanut butter is involved! We have been lovers of our peanut butter cookies for years and I wanted to expand our horizon. Making a dessert in the middle of the week is a rare occasion but I decided to surprise my husband!


I have told you guys several times that my hubby is really honest when I make something new for the blog and sometimes things just don’t make the cut. This one did! He couldn’t stop eating it because it was so good!

  2. Printed off this recipe to make for Thanksgiving at daughter’s in law’s house. We are all close and I always take the same thing. They will be surprised when I bring this!! One question, what size sheet pan did you use?? My oven is older and smaller than most so I have a smaller sheet pan. It is, on inside, about 10 X 15. Have given a few away because they would not fit!

  3. I don’t think I have ever had the pleasure of indulging into a peanut butter cake. It sounds very tasty and I don’t think I would be disappointed either. I will most definitely need to try this when it comes time to making a birthday cake for a relative.

  4. There are quite a few peanut butter lovers in my family that I know would love this recipe. I’m saving it for later, because it may come in handy.

  5. Looks like something the kids would love! Love the idea of creating peanut butter frosting – it’s a new one for us but it sounds delish.

  6. I do really like peanut butter flavor, and this peanut butter cake looks so delightful and really tempting. I will definitely try to make this one on Holiday.
