peanut butter sheet cake









I'm not ordinarily a huge fan of cake or peanut butter.  I don't dislike either one but I don't go out of my way to eat them very often.  This cake was definitely worth trying.  It's not like your typical cake.  It's dense, rich, sweet and buttery.  It made a huge sheet so we were able to share it with lots of friends which is a great thing about a sheet cake.  Oh, and I did pick up all the soft little crumbs in the pan and ate them all up!
