Peanut Butter Cake

Recipe by Rita P

My son-in-law remembered his grandmothers peanut butter cake from long ago. One of her daughters shared this very special recipe with me.

I made this for my husband's birthday and received mixed reviews. My son loved it, my husband wasn't impressed, my father-in-law said it was good, and my daughter didn't care for it at all. I should have used the frosting as a filling (mine came out with the texture of a peanut butter caramel)and made a butter cream icing as one reviewer did. (8)
