    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)

      The cake was delicious and moist. I will definitely make it again. For now, I'm just giving the stars to the cake because I think I may have cooked the icing too long. I cut the icing recipe in 1/2 because I just wanted to fill the cake with it. It got really stiff really fast and so instead of spreading it. I broke pieces off and just put them between the layers. I have a feeling that when there is less icing, cooking it for a shorter period of time is the key. I wasn't sure what the consistency of the sugar/milk mixture was supposed to be when it was done, though, so I just cooked it for 7 minutes. The icing had a good flavor and I definitely think it is worth trying again. I frosted the outside of the cake with a boiled fudge frosting from a cookbook. Thanks for the recipe!

      Oh my gosh! This is one of my favorite cakes and like your son-in-law my grannie use to make this for my grandfather before he passed away 13 years ago. I haven't had this since. This was absolutely wonderful and tasted just like my grannie use to make. Thank you so much for posting this and helping me bring back the memory of climbing off the tractor and sitting on my grandpa's lap eatting peanut butter cake in the field. You have no idea how special this recipe was for me. I haven't asked my grannie for it because she hasn't made it since he passed away and I didn't want to make her dig it out. Thank you Rita P from the bottom of my heart goodcookinfostermom
