Dessert anyone? A little over a year ago, an "online" group I'm involved in got together and we created a recipe book with all of our favorite recipes. One of the ladies (Mary) submitted this recipe. At the time, I was living in Phoenix and thoroughly missing a true Tasty Kake Peanutbutter Tandy Cake. Well, let me tell you, this cake QUICKLY became a favorite. It is EXACTLY like a PB Tandy Cake. EXACTLY. I hope you enjoy!!!
1 tsp vanilla
1 pinch salt
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup milk
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbs. melted butter
1 jar creamy peanut butter
2 8 oz milk chocolate bars
Mix eggs thru butter together well. Pour into a greased jellyroll pan (the BIG one...) Bake for 20-30 minutes (check often after 20 mins...ovens may vary - u all know the toothpick trick!).
While cake is still warm - spread the peanut butter on top in about 1/4" layer (you may not end up using the whole jar of PB AND if using natural PB...drain off the oil before stirring and putting ontop of the cake).
Let cake cool COMPLETELY.
Break up chocolate into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high in 30 second intervals until completely melted. Stirring at each break. Pour and spread over cooled cake.
Refridgerate until chocolate sets.
Slice and serve! 24 slices!!!! Feeds an army - although.....it halves and quarters easily to make a more manageable sized cake for a family. I usually 1/4 it and bake in a pie plate. See, you do need math in real life!!!
It is TRULY YUMMY!!! I GUARANTEE if you like Peanut Butter, and you like chocolate, you with LOVE this cake!!!
