Peanut Butter Texas Sheet Cake.

Now here’s a really good cake that is also easy to make and so yummy, but, you have to like peanut butter and have no peanut allergies.  There is something about this cake that makes you want to go back for more again and again.  This would be a great cake to take to any gathering, indoors as well as outdoors.  This is also a very simple cake to make, and great one for new bakers. I would NOT recommend this recipe to small children because you have to use the stove, unless they are supervised by an adult.  This is a cake that is hard to stop eating! I started to swirl melted fudge throughout this cake but decided against it…but, you can change it in many ways. I hope you enjoy this cake as much as I do . This cake recipe is from a magazine called “Cupcakes and More” by Gooseberry Patch., on magazine stands now.  This recipe is a keeper for sure!
